Aiding recent refugees
The crisis in Afghanistan beginning in the summer of 2021 resulted in a large number of refugees seeking asylum in safe countries. Refugees began coming to Portland and other cities in October, arriving with next to nothing.
During the month of October, the Firm partnered with Refugee Care Collective and solicited donations to make bathroom kits for each refugee. These kits consist of towels, shower curtain, bathmat, soap, toilet paper and a small waste basket. The Firm also collected gift cards from area stores. Seventeen complete kits were delivered to the Collective in late October, thanks to the organizing efforts of attorney Myla Sepulveda.
