IMMIGRATION PUBLIC SERVICE OPPORTUNITY!!!

On Thursday, August 23, from 6:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. in Room 060, local immigration attorney and alum, Becca O'Neill, will hold a training here at the law school to train students to go on monthly visits to the Boone County Jail to conduct "Know Your Rights" presentations to detainees. Detainees are held in the custody of the Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) bureau of the Department of Homeland Security. The first visit this year will be on Friday, August 24. Trained students will conduct individual in-take interviews of each detainee. Students whose schedules do not allow them to visit the jail on Fridays can still take the training. All students are welcome. Once you have been trained you can attend a Friday visit when you are available. Attached are some compelling stories giving examples of some cases that have gone through the Boone County Jail along with a more detailed description of the project. More stories can also be found at: http://www.immigrantjustice.org/tags/these-lives-matter

Starting in September, the trainings will be conducted the third Thursday of the month, with jail visits on the third Friday of the month after the training. Students interested in attending the August 23 training, should email Becca O'Neill directly by MONDAY, AUGUST 13. Her email is boneill@oneillimmigrationlaw.com. Please let Ms. O'Neill know in your e-mail whether you plan to attend the Friday visit after the training. A list of students must be submitted to the jail ten days before the visit. Also, please let Ms. O'Neill know if you speak a second language, although it is not necessary. If you are a student who has already been trained and would like to attend the Friday visit on August 24, please e-mail Becca O'Neill by MONDAY, AUGUST 13, so she can add your name to the list.

Students will receive public service credit for the training and site visits. Students will also be able to count their travel time to and from the Boone County Jail. Interested students should see Jina Scinta to obtain a Reservation Form to sign up to receive public service credit. You can also e-mail her at jina.scinta@louisville.edu.
