Managing Attorney TJ Mills is currently on leave until December 2017 in order to work with the UN refugee agency, UNHCR, in Mexico City. He sent these photos from Tenosique, near the Guatemalan border, where he did a training of new UNHCR officers and then visited a shelter for primarily Central American children, who also designed the murals seen here. New York JFON continues to maintain our full slate of clinics under the leadership of Interim Managing Attorney Devin Millbower and Assisting Attorney Mishal Pahrand.
