A JUDGE HAS RULED IN FAVOR OF DACA

A Californian Judge has ruled temporarily that DACA can continue, in spite of Trump's announcement last year to end the program. The government has already announced its intention to appeal this decision. We will post here when we have more specific information about if/when/how we can mail renewals. Read more here

Brooklyn Half Marathon

A HUGE shout out to everyone who ran or donated to 2017's Brooklyn Half Marathon team! A record year - we raised over $28,000! Our running team – a mix of staff, board members, and friends – ran 13.1 tough miles (and the hundred+ miles of training it took to get there!) to show their support for a cause that matters to them and their community.

Every year they run because refugees facing deportation deserve competent representation, regardless of whether they can afford a private attorney. And, because 13.1 miles is nothing compared to the thousands that refugees travel fleeing persecution to seek protection in the United States.

Brooklyn Half Marathon

A big shout out to everyone who ran or donated to last May’s Brooklyn Half Marathon team! Together we raised nearly $14,000! Our running team – a mix of staff, board members, and friends – ran 13.1 tough miles (and the hundred+ miles of training it took to get there!) to show their support for a cause that matters to them and their community.

They ran because refugees facing deportation deserve competent representation, regardless of whether they can afford a private attorney. And, because 13.1 miles is nothing compared to the thousands that refugees travel fleeing persecution to seek protection in the United States.

Thanks to a generous donation from Greenberg Traurig, LLP, Team CALA runners that raised over $100 had their race registration fee reimbursed!
