Speaker: Ben Jackson is the co-founder and COO of Immigrationhelp.org. Recently named to the 2021 “Fastcase 50” list, Ben Jackson is using tech tools to tackle common problems in immigration law. He was awarded the Access to Justice Tech Fellowship and the Equal Justice Foundation fellowship while attending The Chicago-Kent College of Law. Since then, Ben has worked with fellow Fastcase 50 honorees Jonathan Petts and Rohan Pavuluri to create consumer bankruptcy solution Upsolve, and now he’s the COO and co-founder of legal aid nonprofit Immigrationhelp.org. The nonprofit provides an online tool, equated to the “Turbo Tax for DACA applications”, allowing Dreamers to apply online for free. Ben and his team are on a mission to make immigrating to the United States easy, safe, and free by combining the power of technology with attorneys to help people achieve the American dream. They’ve assisted more than 3,000 immigrants at various stages in their immigration process. The budding organization has received funding from Google.org, KKR, and Harvard University.
Community Service: The committee is finalizing the details and we will add this information soon.
Door Prizes: Two gift cards will be raffled during the meeting courtesy of LexisNexis.
