Short article for a church bulletin or newsletter:
Volunteer with new immigration legal clinic
    A free immigration legal clinic, Justice for Our Neighbors (JFON), will hold its first clinic in Rockford on Sun., Oct. 27.  In the future, this local clinic–part of a national organization–will be on the fourth Sunday of the month.  A qualified immigration attorney staffs the clinic with support from many volunteers.  Volunteering is a way for you to be involved in a justice issue–welcoming and providing legal advice to the poor who are strangers among us.
    Volunteer training will be on Thur., Oct. 24, 6:00-9:00 p.m., at Court Street UMC, 215 N. Court St., Rockford, IL  61103.  Advance registration is not required, though it would be helpful to know if you are going to attend.  If you have questions, please contact Mary English, 815 397-4883 or georgz@aol.com.

 

* JFON is a high quality, free immigration legal clinic
