Loeb Partners With TransUnion and Legal Aid Chicago
In July, Loeb and TransUnion launched a pro bono collaboration with Legal Aid Chicago to assist individuals applying for public benefits. Twenty-five Loeb and TransUnion lawyers and staff formed 12 teams to represent those in need of public benefit assistance, including the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP, f/k/a food stamps), Medicaid and other cash assistance. The teams will process the applications and, should an initial application be denied, help with an appeal. These programs are vital for individuals and families to remain fed, housed and taken care of when sick.
Loeb and Morgan Stanley Cosponsored Series on History of Racism in U.S. Immigration
In partnership with the Hebrew Immigrant Aid Society, Loeb and Morgan Stanley cosponsored a two-part series exploring the history of racism and discrimination in immigration in the United States. Spanning the Chinese exclusion laws of the 1800s to immigration quotas to the more recent Muslim and African country bans, this two-part series took a closer look at how racism and discrimination have shaped U.S. immigration law.
The recording for the first training, “A Brief History of Racism & Discrimination in Immigration Part I: A Historical Overview,” which explores how racism and discrimination intersect with citizenship, politics and law, is available here.
The recording for the second training, “A Brief History of Racism & Discrimination in Immigration Part II: Refugee & Asylum Law,” which takes a deeper dive into the ways racism and discrimination have framed U.S. refugee and asylum law specifically, is available here.
