Project Ishmael is a small immigration legal clinic for children located in First Grace United Methodist Church (www.FirstGraceUMC.org) in Mid City New Orleans. Our 3 main goals are:  

  1. 1) to meet some of the immigration legal needs of children in New Orleans through direct representation and education,
  2. 2) to coordinate volunteer attorneys to help meet the diverse legal needs of women and children who currently live at Hagar's House, and
  3. 3) to challenge systemic injustices that allow children and their families to be separated, harassed, deported or incarcerated based on skin color or immigration status
