Every year on my birthday month I celebrate by hosting a fundraiser for a non-profit organization of my choice. This year, the recipient of collected funds will be the Northwest Immigrant Rights Project.
As an immigrant myself, I remember how important it was to properly follow the long and arduous path to citizenship. At one point, the INS had lost my paperwork. It was if I did not exist, even though I had a social security number and a green card. Once I got a lawyer involved, my paperwork magically and almost instantly appeared and I was able to become a US citizen.
Not all immigrants have access to the right resources and the Northwest Immigrant Rights Project is there for them.
