Our Afghan Friends need your help to secure a pathway to permanent residency in the United States.
Lutheran Social Services National Capital Area (LSSNCA) is arranging a Pro Se Asylum Workshop for Afghans with Humanitarian Parole status. We need empathetic volunteers with strong wiriting skills to assist. No legal background or foreign language skills required. Please note this will be emotionally intense work as clients will be asked to write down their asylum claims (i.e. the reason for their evacuation). If you have training with trauma or social work, it is especially useful but not required.
There will be 3 two-day workshops in June (2-3, 6-7, and 9-10 June) from 8:30 am to 5:30 with a lunch break. LSSNCA will provide some online training for all volunteers prior to the workshops. The workshop will take place at Peace Lutheran Church Fellowship Hall at 6362 Lincolnia Rd, Alexandria, VA 22312.
