WHO WE ARE

WHO WE SERVE

Li is a single mother of two who became a victim of human trafficking after responding to an advertisement on an online news outlet. Shortly after her initial interview where the trafficker inquired about her family, her place of residence, and other personal information, Li was offered a job as a masseuse. On her first day of work however, Li was informed that instead of massages, she would be required to provide sexual services to her clients. When she tried to leave, she was threatened with harm to herself and to her family – leaving her no choice but to comply with the trafficker’s demands. For close to one year, Li was forced to work as a prostitute for her trafficker. In April 2014, Li was rescued during a raid conducted by Homeland Security Investigations (HSI). She cooperated with HSI in the investigation/prosecution of her trafficker and a team of attorneys from Kilpatrick Townsend and AT&T were able to assist her in securing a T-Visa to remain safely in the United States. We thank Susan Tarnower & Angela Muhamad (Kilpatrick Townsend); Teri Galloway & Timothy Johnson (AT&T) for their wonderful work on this case.

Today, these clients live safely from their abusers and persecutors thanks to our incredible volunteers and supporters like you.

Our amazing volunteer attorneys recently won an affirmative asylum case before USCIS for an Iranian
woman and her daughter who converted to Christianity. Their family members threatened to physically
harm them and turn them in to the Iranian police for punishment when they found out about their
conversion. The team from King and Spalding, including Stephen McCullers and Bobby Woo, did an
excellent job preparing the client for her interview and compiling the evidence she needed to support
her claim. Stephen McCullers stated, “This is an excellent outcome for two people who only want to be able to worship in their chosen faith openly and safely. They now have that opportunity and no longer
have to live in fear of being harmed due to their religious beliefs.” Both women now have asylum and are able to build a new life for themselves here in GA. Thank you to the team at King & Spalding for their compassion and care with this case.
