As we start 2021, we reflect on the challenges faced in 2020 -- an unpredictable year. And as we look back to the children, women, and men served at Casa Cornelia, one theme emerges: What if they didn't have an attorney?
If these survivors did not have an attorney, they would have faced severe harm or even death. As we embark 2021, a new year full of new possibilities, we ask for your support.
Your contribution will be the reason that survivors like Teresa, Simon, and Wang Lei do have an attorney by their side as they fight for their freedom and safety.
In 2021, immigration policies will surely change. Your support will provide high quality legal services to many who find themselves in limbo, waiting to receive a work permit or find out when their court date will be scheduled.
Your gift to the Carmen Chavez Justice Fund this holiday season will allow children, families, and asylum seekers to receive the most effective legal response through Casa Cornelia's pro bono legal services, now and into the future.
Please make a donation today, every gift helps!
Consider making a monthly donation. A recurring (monthly) gift will help you spread your contribution through the year, or indefinitely. Your donation will provide ongoing access to legal services for local survivors of human rights violations who live here in San Diego County, as well as individuals who travel from all around the world and present themselves at the U.S. border, seeking asylum.
