Lauren Burke Featured in ABC News-Univision Video

Atlas: Developing Immigrant Youth — a cooperative empowerment center for immigrant youth and their allies co-founded by former Skadden Fellow Lauren Burke (’09) — was featured in an ABC News-Univision video (“4 Challenges Faced by Immigrant Youth,” July 25). The video outlined the difficulties that confront Lauren’s clients, including a public stigma against undocumented immigrants, the rights and privileges they are denied because of their immigration status, a lack of guidance, and finding employment. Lauren said her work is “about showing them that they can take control of this and that they don’t have to rely upon the law to just change. And they can make change themselves.”
