Charity for Oct. 16-21: MICA Project

The Migrant and Immigrant Community Action Project (MICA Project) was founded in 2011 by law students Nicole Cortés and Jessica Mayo. Through their work in the nonprofit immigration field, they observed surplus need for low-cost immigration legal services.

The MICA Project utilizes a combination of community outreach and legal services to promote the voice and dignity of immigrant communities.

The MICA Project’s combined approach addresses the surplus need for immigration legal services in immigrant communities by taking a proactive approach, providing immigrants with the information and resources they need before legal issues arise.

The MICA Project obtained start-up funding in the spring of 2012 and began accepting clients from St. Louis, Southern Illinois, and Southeastern Missouri in October of 2012.
