Attention, immigration attorneys and other advocates: Miami’s Catholic archdiocese is seeking your pro-bono help.
The church organization’s Catholic Legal Services issued a plea Monday for immigration lawyers and other volunteers to staff a May 20 “Mega Citizenship event” at 14 sites in Miami-Dade and Broward counties.
The goal of the event is to — at no charge — help legal permanent residents start the process of becoming U.S. citizens. Volunteers must get advanced training.
The lawyers will help people fill out applications and answer questions. The other volunteers will serve as linguists or assist on logistics.
