FIRRP – Volunteers Aid Nonprofit with Immigration Concerns
As an immigration attorney with more than two decades of experience, Christopher Stender previously served as partner at Stender & Associates, PC, where he represented clients in state and federal courts, including the United States Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit and the United States Supreme Court. A financial supporter of and former volunteer for The Florence Immigrant and Refugee Rights Project (FIRRP), Christopher Stender is one of many individuals whose efforts have made the organization successful in providing immigration-related services for men, women, and unaccompanied children.
Better known as The Florence Project, FIRRP partners with organizations and individuals to help ensure due process for detained immigrants and refugees. In an effort to increase community awareness of its services, FIRRP schedules members of its staff to speak to community and civic organizations, church congregations, and corporate offices.
For those seeking volunteer opportunities, The Florence Project welcomes a variety of pro bono services from attorneys, interpreters, expert witnesses, researchers, and medical professionals. Volunteers can also assist with administrative tasks, or join the Detention Watch Network.
