Background & Context

On April 14, 2020 the U.S. government designated Temporary Protected Status (TPS) for Cameroon. TPS means that Cameroonians in the U.S. will finally be able to live and work without fear of deportation. Cameroon is in the midst of multiple humanitarian crises, and for many Cameroonian immigrants, deportation would be a death sentence. In order to receive the critical protection TPS provides, Cameroonias in the U.S. must fill out an application form. That's where you come in.

We are recruiting attorneys to assist Cameroonian immigrants through the application process. It is critical for anyone navigating the system to have legal guidance, because an incorrect application can increase the risk of deportation.

We will be holding a virtual pro bono attorney training on July 12, 2022 from 6:00-7:30pm EST. In this training, we will show you how to fill out a TPS application, answer your questions, and then match you with a Cameroonian community member to assist.
