2018 - Gail Irish

April 19, 2023

Gail Irish has been volunteering with the Refugee and Immigrant Program since August 2014. Gail has compassionately shared her linguistic talents as a fluent French speaker and former ELL teacher with us. She has consistently volunteered in The Advocates’ Monday morning case deliberations. These are challenging days because we are charged with determining how to honor the journeys of each person we interview while acknowledging the capacity limits for staff and our volunteer attorneys. After a morning of case discussion reviewing files focused on case logic and feasibility, Gail spends the afternoon with someone hopeful to get our help but unable to provide any guarantees.
