IRAP’s Second Annual Pro Bono Appreciation Week Honors Volunteer Network

During IRAP’s second annual Pro Bono Appreciation week on April 4-8, 2022, we honored 51 law students, pro bono attorneys, and volunteers from our network. These honorees represent some of our most dedicated and passionate volunteers. Whether they are assisting Afghan clients apply for Special Immigrant Visas, helping IRAP disseminate legal information to detained Liberians eligible for permanent status, or standing with us to challenge xenophobic Trump-era executive orders in federal court, these volunteers demonstrated exceptional commitment to IRAP’s clients and their communities over the past year.

On behalf of everyone at IRAP, thank you to all of the honorees and our entire pro bono and volunteer network for all the work that you do to ensure that everyone has a safe place to live and a safe way to get there.
