Feerick Center Friend Raiser
Join the Feerick Center for Social Justice at the 2020 Friend Raiser to celebrate Fordham Law students, Fordham Law School staff, volunteer alumni, translators, and other immigration advocate volunteers for their work with the Dilley Pro Bono Project to assist detained asylum-seeking women with children fighting expedited deportation.

The Friend Raiser is our fundraising drive to cover the costs of the five service trips scheduled for 2020. Join us to hear first-hand accounts of our volunteers’ experiences at the nation’s largest immigration detention center, the South Texas Family Residential Center in Dilley, Texas, and learn about the impact of our work.
