CLINIC’s Advocacy Guide: How We Can Help You

 

CLINIC's Advocacy Guide

CLINIC wants to remind members of how its Advocacy Section can provide support and assistance.  This document outlines the advocacy related services CLINIC can provide as well as the channels through which CLINIC works with officials at the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) to resolve individual case and systemic problems. 

CLINIC relies on input from its affiliates to help identify problematic trends and policies of the federal government.  Please remember to share individual case stories and reports of inappropriate or problematic policies that you encounter in your work.  Bring issues to the attention of CLINIC’s Advocacy Director, Allison Posner at aposner@cliniclegal.org or (301) 565-4831, at any time. Information from you is crucial to CLINIC’s ability to advocate for improvements that benefit the individuals served by CLINIC’s network.
