Looking for Pro Bono Opportunities? Consider TPS Clinics

In their latest “Pro Bono Matters” column for the Indiana Lawyer, Indianapolis associates Rachel Phillips and Zena Braish discuss the opportunity to host a temporary protected status (TPS) clinic, which can give migrants from certain unsafe countries the right to live and work in the United States for a temporary period of time.

Phillips and Braish share that the number of TPS applications is high in Indianapolis, especially among its robust community of immigrants from Haiti, which is one of 14 countries designated for TPS. The National Immigrant Justice Center (NIJC) coordinated TPS clinics in Indianapolis, where attorneys completed and filed TPS applications with the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services for individuals seeking TPS in the U.S.

The authors add that the NIJC anticipates future clinics to support individuals who have fled Afghanistan and Ukraine given the countries’ recent designation for TPS.
