2021 Champion Volunteers

Normally, we would honor volunteers that have gone above and beyond for our organization at our in person Pro Bono Advisory Council (PBAC) Mixer. However, given the current circumstances, our PBAC hosted a Game Night fundraiser. We are excited to gather with our friends, supporters and volunteers. This year, these three ladies helped advance our mission, serve and provide much needed guidance to the community through services and education.

Maria Cabal was a Citizenship client in 2019 and passed her naturalization test in 2020. Since then, she has been volunteering with Advancing Justice — LA’s Citizenship project, providing crucial language support to our Filipino clients.

Krisha Mae Cabrera first joined the Advancing Justice — LA as an intake staff on our Tagalog line for the Disaster Relief Program for Immigrants. When we needed an artist for a year end project, she generously volunteered her time and talents.

Kelly Chu interned with us in 2020 and has stayed on as a volunteer. She has helped many clients with their applications and prepare for their upcoming USCIS interviews with mock interview practice. She has also helped train our current interns with mock interviews.
