Ukraine TPS Pro Bono Project

April 1, 2022
Vera Nina

4GG is launching a large-scale pro bono project to provide pro bono legal assistance for Ukrainian nationals to apply for Temporary Protected Status (TPS), a form of temporary immigration relief that provides the right to live and work in the United States for a temporary period.

While we are awaiting publication of Federal Register notice, which will tell us when USCIS will begin accepting TPS applications, we are now circulating the link below to potential clients, so that they can be alerted as soon as we are able to begin preparing their applications for TPS. So that we can reach as many Ukrainians in the United States as possible, we are writing to ask for your help in circulating this link: L4GG.org/TPS-Ukraine.

If you have contacts in the Ukrainian community, please share the link with them. Individuals who fill out the form to which the link leads will be notified by email and/or text message as soon as it’s time for them to complete the screening process.

Please feel free to share this form (L4GG.org/TPS-Ukraine) with potential TPS applicants, as well as others who may have ties to the Ukrainian community in the US. If you have any questions, please reach out to support@L4GG.org.

We appreciate your willingness to help with this important work!

In solidarity,

FAQs

You've got questions and we have the answers

Who are Ukrainians in the Carolinas?

We are a network of volunteers throughout the Carolinas dedicated to assisting the people of Ukraine and promoting Ukrainian culture in the Carolinas. Our network has been operational in the Triangle for the last 8 years, ever since Russia invaded Ukraine. We have been collecting and shipping medical supplies to Ukraine, helping refugees, wounded warriors, families of perished Ukrainian heroes and orphans. We have hosted numerous cultural events and advocated for assistance to Ukraine. Since February 24, 2022, when Russia started its new phase of war in Ukraine, we have become an even stronger and larger group and welcome your support. We have media coverage, politicians’ attention, but most importantly - everybody’s willingness to help Ukraine’s brave military and citizens. We already shipped several containers of medical supplies, so generously donated to us by local supporters of Ukraine and of freedom. We also provided localized support to various cities throughout Ukraine where there was a great need for food and medical supplies.

What is your status? Are you an officially recognized charitable organization?

We have incorporated in North Carolina and are in the process of applying for a 501(c)(3) charitable status. We hope to receive it by the end of this year, and upon receipt, all donations will be granted a tax-deductible status retroactively.

Where can I send my monetary donation?

You can write a check to Ukrainians in the Carolinas or PayPal or Zelle your donation to donations.ukrainians.carolinas@gmail.com

Can I donate clothing or other goods?

At the moment, the border is overwhelmed with various humanitarian supplies from European nations, so we are focusing our efforts on securing and shipping medical supplies only.

What else can I do to help in supporting Ukraine against the Russian invasion?

Spread the word! Contact your elected representatives and ask them to provide air defense systems to Ukraine, expedite legislation to allow Ukrainian refugees into US, and secure humanitarian corridors into sieged Ukrainian cities.

I have a press inquiry or want to schedule an interview
