" Citizenship opens myriad doors for those seeking asylum within the U.S. border. By serving people who otherwise would not have the means to obtain legal council, TRII is able to give people the chance at citizenship that they deserve and often desperately need. Through the Millennium Fellowship, I have become part of a network of passionate change-makers that I look forward to learning with and from. "

TRII measures its impact through the number of students we train, the amount of money raised, the number of events we host and attend, and the number of clients we represent. Citizenship opens myriad doors for those seeking asylum within the U.S. border.
