The Migrant Center for Human Rights helps two men – one from Gambia and one from the Democratic Republic of the Congo – win asylum pro se. They won their cases after attending evidence and court prep workshops hosted by the Migrant Center, receiving human rights evidence packets to support their cases, and meeting one-on-one with a Migrant Center lawyer to prepare for their final court hearing. In the words of one of the men, ‘‘thank you for everything’’.
