Seeking Volunteers for CAIR

September 20, 2011

The Capital Area Immigrant’s Rights (CAIR) Coalition conducts regular visits to jails in Virginia to meet noncitizens detained by Immigration and Customs Enforcement and collect information to help them with their cases. A small number of volunteers accompany CAIR staff on these jail visits. This is an excellent opportunity to learn about immigration issues and gain experience working with immigrant and detainee populations.


Volunteers must attend a 1.5-hour training and must commit to attending at least 1 jail visit per semester, if needed. Volunteers will not sign up for visits at the training but rather be contacted shortly thereafter.


A jail visit training will be conducted this Friday, September 23rd, from 2-3:30pm, at the CAIR Coalition office, located at 1612 K St NW, Suite 204.
If you’re interested, please sign up and Jen will put you in touch with the Volunteer Coordinator to ensure there is space available.
