Brownstein attorneys partnered with Denver’s Project Worthmore to provide advice and counsel regarding the Green Card application process to 10 refugee families. Brownstein trained multiple volunteer attorneys in the naturalization process and hosted a clinic in April 2017 at the Denver office.
Project Worthmore aims to improve the quality of Denver-area refugees by providing cultural mentorship and community supports, ranging from service opportunities to legal clinics such as the one hosted at the firm.
Project Worthmore was started by Frank and Carolyn Anello in 2011 and began as a makeshift response to the unmet needs of refugees in the community. It has since evolved into an organized effort to serve this population, including teaching families how to use public transportation, registering children for school, teaching English, and a variety of other needed skills as Project Worthmore’s refugee families adapt to their new life in the United States.
Twenty-five individuals attended Brownstein’s Green Card clinic—along with three translators—to receive guidance from nine of the firm’s attorneys and support staff.
Each family met in a small conference room or office with an attorney and translator to work through and finalize Green Card documents.
