Immigrants arriving in the US already have a plethora of struggles. To add finance struggles to that is a whole other issue entirely.
Adina Appelbaum founded and helps lead the Immigration Impact Lab, CAIR Coalition's newest initiative and first-ever concerted appellate impact litigation project.
From 2015-2017, Adina was an Equal Justice Works Fellow sponsored by the Arnold & Porter Foundation at CAIR Coalition, where she created and led the Crim-Imm Pro Bono Project to expand access to counsel trained in the intersection of criminal and immigration law and impact litigation to defend detained immigrants facing deportation due to convictions. For this Project, Forbes highlighted her in its 30 under 30 Law and Policy list.
