Dear America,

During my time as an Lighthouse Immigrant Advocates (LIA) intern, I learned what is possible when a group of people come together to place the well-being of their community above all else. Whether taking on the weight of someone’s story during a phone intake or performing a seemingly tedious task such as filing documents, each action in this office is done with the knowledge that this work is bringing a sense of security and stability to the lives of our neighbors.
