Holly Cooper Returns to Haiti as Part of Haiti Legal Medical Delegation
Holly S. Cooper, staff attorney in the Immigration Law Clinic, will return to Haiti on December 10, 2011 with Jayne Fleming of Reed Smith LLP to provide humanitarian aid as part of the Haiti Legal Medical project that seeks to assist survivors of the 2010 earthquake. The project has provided safe houses for survivors of gender-based violence, medical assistance, funding for education for women and children, and assisted families with humanitarian parole into the United States. Cooper, who travelled to Haiti twice in 2010, has also provided legal assistance and advice to Haitians wrongfully deported from the United States.
