Barack Ferrazzano and the National Immigrant Justice Center (NIJC) worked together to protect and defend human rights on behalf of DREAMers at a DACA renewal clinic hosted by the Firm. Over a dozen Barack Ferrazzano attorneys and paralegals, trained by NIJC, worked to complete and file applications to renew DACA. Through this program, 10 young immigrants were able to successfully renew their DACA status, meaning they can renew their work authorization and continue their education.
