In this year’s annual Dayzad Law Thanksgiving holiday card, we asked for your nominations for your favorite charity, so we could make a donation. We received amazing charity nominations from the Dayzad Law family, such as LA Gay and Lesbian Center; Bet Tzedek; Harriett Buhai Center for Family Law; Immigrant Defenders; American Cancer Society; Justice Campaign Housed within the AIC; Midnight Mission; UNICEF; Looking Beyond; The Innocence Project; and the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society.
These are truly great charities. To break the tie, we took a run-off vote and ultimately sent a check to Immigrant Defenders, a local legal aid nonprofit working with the immigrant community. They provide deportation defense for hundreds of immigrants each year who would otherwise not have access to legal representation. This work is critical during a time when the government has made it extremely difficult for immigrants to receive a fair process. We are so grateful for legal aid groups like the Immigrant Defenders!
We kicked off the holidays by joining one of our clients in their annual “Shoeboxes of Love” program. Each member of our firm sponsored children in need, by sending a box of holiday gifts to each of them. This a tradition we cherish each year, as it is a blessing to bring joy to these immigrant children.
We hope you and your family have a happy and safe holiday season!
