Come learn about the challenges and realities facing immigrants in Massachusetts, including how the ICE detention system and the pathways into and out of immigration custody affect our immigrant friends and neighbors. Learn how you can help.

With Attorneys Susan Cohen of Mintz Levin, and Irene Freidel of the Political Asylum/Immigration Representation (PAIR) Project.

Susan is very active in the American Immigration Lawyers Association (AILA) and has contributed to federal and state immigration regulations. She is frequently quoted in the media.

Susan has won awards for her political asylum work from the Supreme Judicial Court of Massachusetts, the Political Asylum/Immigration Representation (PAIR) Project, the Massachusetts Lawyers Weekly, and Mintz.
