Hurtubise Weber Law recently had the privilege of reaching out to our local immigrant community on two different occasions.
On Tuesday, March 10th, we spoke with a group of about 60 members of the San Jose community at an event held by PACT (People Acting in Community Together) of San Jose. PACT is a grassroots organization whose mission is to empower everyday people to create a more just community. To learn more, visit http://www.pactsj.org/. On Friday, March 27th, the firm spoke with an intimate group of parents of children with special needs at a meeting held by Fiesta Educativa of San Jose. Fiesta Educativa is an organization whose mission is to inform and assist Latino families in obtaining services for their children with special needs. To learn more, visit http://fiestaeducativa.org/.
We volunteered at both events to raise awareness of the President's new DAPA (deferred action for parents of U.S. citizens and lawful permanent residents) program and the expansion of the current DACA (Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals) program. We were able to answer a variety of good questions posed by community members regarding eligibility for these programs.
