We are Impowerus. We seek to provide a platform for immigrant youth to connect with pro bono legal services so that they can receive assistance, especially children in removal/deportation proceedings.

In the United States, children without representation are 5 times more likely to be removed from the country than those with an attorney. The Impowerus goal is to bridge the access-to-justice gap faced by immigrant children. We will help* law firms lower the cost of doing pro bono at the same time.

Your donation will help us provide funding to launch and code our platform. Impowerus works by connecting youth with attorneys via video chat, *allowing attorneys to* time-track, keep notes, and see their own progress through comparative analytics.

Help support the Impowerus team's push through final development for our prospective launch in August of 2018. All of the money donated here will go towards the creation of the platform.

Impowerus was chosen as one of the top eight student tech startups in the nation, and we will be pitching at South by Southwest on March 12th. Find more information on us through our website, or through the Indiana Lawyer. Keep an eye out for us in the news, and to keep connected find us on Linkedin, Facebook and Twitter
