Fundraiser for Detained South Asians

We are raising funds for Innovation Law Lab, an organization that represents approximately fifty South Asians detained in a federal facility in Sheridan, Oregon.  The detainees are from India, Bangladesh, and Nepal, and have been separated from their families.    

Recently, Innovation Law Lab successfully secured the release of eight Sikh men on bond pending a hearing on their asylum application.  

Innovation Law Lab relies heavily on volunteers and has a limited staff.  We hope our funds will continue to fund their efforts to represent those who should have an opportunity to present their case for asylum.  

Please join us at Davis, Wright & Tremaine LLP at 505 Montgomery Street, San Francisco for an opportunity to meet other members and contribute to a great cause.  Appetizers and refreshments will be served. Please RSVP here. If you cannot attend, please consider donating here
