Katherine’s background as an immigrant from Dominican Republic and immigration advocate is what drew her to IJC. As a student attorney in the International Human Rights Law Clinic, she worked on defensive and affirmative asylum cases, and was exposed to Trafficking and Special Immigrant Juvenile cases. She also worked at an immigration law firm, Grossman Young and Hammond, where she assisted on defensive asylum, Temporary Protected Status, Adjustment of Status, and Consular Processing cases. As an IJC Fellow, Katherine will work at CAIR Coalition with detained immigrants in removal proceedings.
