NILA in Action
NILA is pleased to announce a new partnership with the Children’s Immigration Law Academy of the American Bar Association, or CILA. The partnership has three main components – trainings, technical assistance, and resource creation – to be delivered over the course of the coming year. We look forward to collaborating with, and contributing to, CILA’s ability to build capacity for those working to advance the rights of children seeking protection. More here!
