Pisgah Legal Service seeking matching donations to fund "Justice For All Project" to assist our immigrant neighbors

Many of our immigrant neighbors face extraordinary fear, uncertainty and isolation in the midst of a changing approach to immigration policy in our country.  Pisgah Legal Services assists immigrants in WNC through our “Justice For All Project” by helping eligible immigrants secure work authorization and legal status. They also help immigrants secure food, housing, and safety from abuse.


Thanks to a challenge grant from a generous donor, all gifts made to the Justice for All Project between now and April 30 will be matched dollar-for-dollar up to $20,000. Please share this information to support Pisgah Legal in helping some of our most vulnerable neighbors.  We've also posted this on the our CHIP Facebook page to make it easier to share.
