A Conversation with Martine Kalaw + TASSC Legal

Martine Kalaw is a community advocate, speaker, writer, and Huffington Post blogger on her undocumented immigrant struggle in America. Martine endured an eleven year battle as an undocumented immigrant and seven years in deportation without a family. Through the help and support of two strangers she persevered to become a US citizen and senior level executive with an advanced degree.

Please join us for a collaborative legal orientation featuring Martine Kalaw. Martine will speak about her journey through the challenging and often frustrating immigration system of the United States.

TASSC immigration attorney Michelle Stilwell will discuss the role of an immigration attorney and immigration procedure and answer any questions you may have.
