Refugee Adjustment Day

  • Catholic Charities 2740 Southeast Powell Boulevard Portland, OR, 97202 United States (map)

2018 marks the 10th Anniversary of RAD!!

For ten years an amazing and inspiring group of community members have been coming together in support of RAD.  By joining our efforts and expertise to host a biannual free legal clinic for refugees Catholic Charities has been able to help thousands of individuals who are applying to adjust their status in order to obtain their green cards for legal permanent residency. Hundreds of volunteer attorneys, legal professionals, law students, interpreters, doctors, and even more volunteers make this pro bono clinic possible. Last November this community of over 300 volunteers served over 100 families! 

RAD is an opportunity for all of us to come together and support refugees as they continue on their pathway to citizenship.

Donate: For the first time we are raising funds to help support the efforts that make RAD possible. Funds raised will only be used to purchase supplies and food and to reimburse interpreters for their work. You can donate here: www.catholiccharitiesoregon.org/RAD 

We’re also partnering with Butterfly Boxes to coordinate donations of household items for the day of the event. To read more about donating, click here
