This community engaged learning workshop is open only to students who are concurrently enrolled in SPANLANG 108SL: Spanish Immersion and Asylum Law. Students who opt into HUMRTS 108 will have the opportunity to apply their advanced language skills and knowledge from the class as volunteers with the CARA Family Detention Pro Bono Project in Dilley, TX for one week immediately following the academic term. Students will work directly with detained Spanish-speaking families seeking asylum to prepare them for the credible fear interview (CFI). CARA will train students to conduct CFI orientations for asylum-seekers and provide guidance on how to prepare them for their interview.

Founded in 1999 as the Berkeley War Crimes Studies Center, the Center moved to Stanford in 2014 with transitional support from Dr. Haruhisa Handa. For five years, we operated under the name WSD HANDA Center for Human Rights and International Justice. In 2019 we became known simply as the Center for Human Rights and International Justice.
