Give Light, Give Hope to Immigrant Families

THE STORY:

I started volunteering with Justice for Our Neighbors (JFON) in 2011 when a clinic was being organized in Lakeland, FL. Hearing the stories of the clients who came seeking help at the clinics was one of the biggest reality checks I've gotten in my life. Seeing the difference that JFON made in their lives by helping people do anything they legally could through the system opened my eyes to the challenges that immigrants face within the system and how easy it is to make a life altering mistake without the help of a lawyer.

After this election, supporting JFON is now more important to me than ever. JFON not only helps the clients that come to see them, but they also help dispel harmful myths about immigrants and they help create human connection and understanding.
