" The Right to Immigration Institute's success could not have been possible without the collaboration and support of numerous organizations and individuals. As we look to turn the page and begin on the next chapter of our journey of growth, I'm excited to be a Millennium Fellow because this will be essential in hearing about strategies and ideas other students are using to build their ideas and tackle complex issues. This collaboration and feedback that comes with working and learning from others is a key component in ensuring our success. "
Millennium Fellowship Project: The Right to Immigration Institute
The Right to Immigration Institute (TRII-pronounced “tree”) is the only non-profit in the United States focused on training undergraduate students to become accredited with the Department of Justice (DOJ) so they can represent people navigating the immigration system. TRII measures its impact and effectiveness three ways: students trained, clients served, and events hosted or participated in.
About the Millennium Fellow
Jonathan is senior at Brandeis University where he is majoring in politics and philosophy and minoring in economics, legal studies, and social justice & social policy. Born in Denmark and raised in the United States, Jonathan has always been drawn to issues surrounding immigration. While his experiences of navigating the immigration system have been primarily straightforward, this is not a reality for most people attempting to understand immigration in the U.S. When he isn't working on immigration issues or taking classes, Jonathan enjoys hiking, sculpture gardens, cooking, and talking about hyper-local politics.
