For the past 11 years, Refugee Adjustment Day (RAD) has brought together refugees interested in applying for permanent residency (Green Card) and attorneys who can assist with the process.

This event is possible through a collaboration with legal and medical professionals, social service providers, community members, interpreters, and volunteers, who donate their time to provide a free legal clinic that assists refugees in completing and submitting the necessary paperwork to apply for permanent resident status (Green Card)

This is an all-day event that takes place at Catholic Charities’ Clark Family Center at 2740 SE Powell Blvd., Portland, OR 97202. Please contact Marandas Sinlapasai Garcia, LLC, with any questions or to RSVP at (503) 607-0444.¬†Attendees must RSVP by November 29, 2019.
