Many of our Friends will have experienced trauma, either from a violent experience, harassment, domestic violence, threats or all of the above. Moreover, the process of crossing into the US, being detained at the border and being repeatedly questioned by US government officials have their own damaging impact.
These experiences often have effects that last long after the incident in question is over.
With this in mind, those volunteers who will be working in the Pro Se Clinic should be trained to question our Friends with sensitivity to all these issues.
This training will be live in NYC but you can sign up here and we'll send you a link to join online.
