On Track for Justice: An AFSC Intern Goes the Distance for Immigrant Rights

If you want to catch Sara Crippen, you'd better lace up your track shoes. Tight.

A 2011 graduate of Central College in Pella, Iowa and a member of the Central track team, Sara served as an intern during the spring semester with AFSC Iowa's Immigrants Voice Program in Des Moines. Every Tuesday afternoon, Sara assisted Jody Mashek, IVP Legal Services Director, with walk-in hours. With a beaming smile, Sara offered a warm welcome to immigrants seeking a variety of immigration legal services, including family reunification.
