March 2023

On April 18, 2023, the Vance Center will hold its third annual awards ceremony in Guatemala City honoring law firms from across Latin America and around the world for their valuable contributions to the Keep Families Together initiative.

The evening will include recognition of law firms that provided meaningful support to KFT in 2022, as well as remarks from partner organizations organizations for which KFT provided co-counsel from their clients’ home countries, and Vance Center Committee members.

Watch the 2023 awards ceremony beginning at 6:30 p.m. CST/8:30 p.m. EDT via Zoom here.

Since 2018, KFT has provided pro bono co-counsel from the home countries of families seeking to immigrate in the United States, but separated by the U.S. government’s Zero Tolerance and other policies. The initiative, organized in collaboration with the Pro Bono Network of the Americas, is currently active in 27 countries around the world, with notable recent growth in sub-Saharan Africa and Asia, and has supported almost 300 cases to date.
