Free “SWAP MEET JUSTICE” Immigration Legal Aid Fairs (Ventura Co., CA)
January 19, 2020 @ 8:00 am - January 26, 2020 @ 3:00 pm
WHAT WE DO:
🔵We help people with qualifying permanent residency (green) cards fill out the application to become citizens, and VOTERS!
🔵We help also DACA recipients maintain their status and get aid to pay the every-2-year fee of $495 if necessary, along with asking our legislators to provide a path to citizenship for these amazing and hardworking students and workers.
🔵We’re now helping with green card renewals and Selective Service applications.
🔵We will also register voters.
🔵We will be adding CENSUS information to our services soon!
WOULD YOU LIKE TO VOLUNTEER?
🔵New volunteer training: We ask first-time volunteers to be join us for a quick lesson on how to fill out the forms at 8:30 – 9:30
🔵You need to be detail-oriented, good with paperwork, have legible handwriting and willing to accept instruction from the immigration professionals amongst us.
🔵You do not need to speak another language, but we appreciate all bilingual volunteers. Not all applicants speak Spanish, but many at the Oxnard College Swap meet do. We will team up volunteers to best help each applicant.
🔵You do not need to be a lawyer. You will be trained to fill in the required paperwork, and a lawyer checks all our work. We have an orientation at 8:30 to run new volunteers through the forms.
🔵You do not need to be a citizen or an adult. Motivated teenagers would be most welcome.
🔵You do need to be patient, kind and willing to smile. Sometime the forms take a couple of hours to get through, even with a couple of volunteers working on them together. Our focus is to help immigrants and this must be the motivation for our volunteers as well. We retain the right to respectfully decline the services of any potential volunteer.
