The Seattle chapter was founded in 2011, and for many years assisted IRAP's mission by pairing law students with attorneys to provide legal representation to refugees from Iraq, Afghanistan, and Syria. More recently, we have moved to other projects such as court monitoring and similar endeavors to build IRAP's community and resource bank in the Seattle area and broader Pacific Northwest. We also regularly host outreach events, film screenings, speaker panels, and an annual CLE training. Our student leaders have consistently attended the National Student Summit in New York to meet with IRAP students and leaders from across IRAP’s network. Seattle students also participate in IRAP student trips to Jordan and Lebanon, where they meet with IRAP’s international staff, receive additional training, and contribute to the organization’s work in the Middle East.
