Help Needed for Today's YLD Power of Attorney Clinic


Dear Friends and Colleagues, 

Tennessee Immigrants and Refugees Rights Coalition, in collaboration with the Tennessee Bar Association/Young Lawyers Division will be hosting its second Power of Attorney Clinic in Memphis. This clinic serves to offer assistance with family preparation plans to the immigrant community. We want to keep their children and families safe in the event of a deportation, or other immigration enforcement action. Families will receive assistance with power of attorneys for their children, and guidance on creating and implementing their family plans.

The first Power of Attorney Clinic was a great success, attracting more than 50 people for a Know-Your-Rights presentation, and enabling us to help 15 families with powers of attorney. We are hoping to assist 30 to 35 additional families, and we need YOU!! 

We are looking for attorneys that can help families with power of attorneys, and cannot assist immigrant families without you! You will receive a training the day of the workshop. Please register here to volunteer.


Family Defense Workshop 

When: Thursday, August 24, 2017

Time: ​6 p.m. to 8:30 p.m.

Where: El Mercadito, 3766 Ridgeway Rd., Memphis, TN 38115


Also, if you are a public notary and would like to volunteer to notarize power of attorneys that day, we need YOU! Please email me, if you have any questions.

Thank you!

Brandon D. Pettes 

District 14 Representative 

TBA Young Lawyers Division
