Abby Krusemark, an international relations major works for the Immigration Advocates Network (IAN) in New York City, N.Y.
Krusemark assists with an IAN website for unaccompanied immigrant children which offers children and their guardians information, legal resources, and advocates. A national non-profit made up of immigrants' rights organizations, IAN is a group of immigrants' rights organizations that aim to increase access to justice for low-income immigrants.
"I enjoy working with a small team to form partnerships and publish content that helps people," says Krusemark.
"I became interested in this field first while volunteering with refugee families in Manchester through the Meelia Center. During my senior year I chose to write my thesis on a topic of law, migration, and public health. I am interested in pursuing a career in law and migration as an immigration attorney; my job with IAN puts me on the front-line of immigration policy and advocacy."
