Workshops

¡Protege a tu Familia!

Protege a tu Familia

IPJC and Ureña Law Office organized Protege a tu Familia to respond to a specific community need: to delve into the topic of family preparedness so Latino families learn to prepare emergency plans that will allow them to protect their minor children in case of an emergency, detention and/or deportation. The workshop was two-fold: and interactive workshop in Spanish with presentations by renowned attorneys such as Sandy Restrepo (Colectiva Legal del Pueblo) and Norma Linda Ureña (Ureña Law Office) and a free Family Law Legal Clinic for individual consultations in Spanish.

We have had Protege tu Familia workshops in three counties.
