U Visa Assistance Following The Fourth Of July Parade Shooting

This weekend, thanks to the help of more than a dozen AILA attorneys (American Immigration Lawyer’s Association), NSLAC staff, and other volunteers, NSLAC screened 52 individuals seeking U Visas, and we are evaluating their cases and placing them with pro bono attorneys for further assistance. These individuals were those impacted by the Fourth of July Parade shooting in Highland Park and visited the Family Assistance Center at Highland Park High School.

A very special thank you to all attorneys, staff, and volunteers who made this possible; this project couldn’t have been as successful without your involvement: Jenny Grobelski, Cathy Higgins-Mora, Ana Jimenez, Emily Love, Marina Maric, KiKi Mosley, Kate Radder, Ashley Santos, Laura Vilim, and Irma Wilson.
