Join us in learning about Penn Laws Immigrant Rights Project (@PLIRP) with co-directors Ellyn Jameson and Mariel Mussack. The Penn Law Immigrant Rights Project advocates on behalf of immigrants in the Philadelphia community and across the country. Their client base is primarily immigrants, asylum seekers and refugees in the Philadelphia area who need assistance with immigration-related legal issues and they partner with local organizations such as Nationalities Services Center, Pennsylvania Immigration & Citizenship Coalition, Friends of Farm Workers, HIAS and AFRICOM. They are dedicated to making an impact on one of the most critical legal issues of our time. The PLIRP community has JD and LLM students from around the world, and all share a passion for immigrant issues. They write, "PLIRP is a family and a safe-haven for all who believe that our country is better when we welcome immigrants to enrich our communities."
As always, Diversi-teas are an opportunity to relax, listen, ask questions, share your own ideas all while drinking tea in good company. We provide tea and cookies, come with your interests and ideas. You are welcome to bring your lunch.
