It was humbling to be at the Black Cultural Archives (BCA) on Wednesday 9th May 2018 to assist at one of its ‘Windrush’ Immigration Legal Clinics. It was heartbreaking to see the great stress and upset felt by so many Caribbean born British people who have had their lives turned upside down by the government’s hostile environment policy.
That is why I am so grateful to lawyers from the wonderful Faegre Baker Daniels LLP for coming down to Brixton and providing first class triage and legal advice to so many desperate people. A massive thank you to Claire D. Nilson, FBD’s Head of Immigration and Global Mobility; Stephen Llewellyn, Counsel and Head of Pro Bono; Katie Newman, Employment Solicitor; and Hoden Buraleh, Immigration Paralegal.
BCA is still seeking lawyers to assist at the clinics if any other lawyers can spare 3 hours between 5pm and 8pm on a Wednesday or between 10am and 1pm on a Saturday.
