The ACLU and the law firm of Keker, Van Nest & Peters have filed a case in the Northern District of California seeking to represent a class of people in California who are affected by the Trump Administration's travel ban. To assist the case, the ACLU is looking for persons in the following categories:
- Individuals living in California and holding visas (not green cards) who are nationals of the countries targeted by the ban (Iraq, Iran, Libya, Syria, Yemen, Sudan, Somalia) and want to travel outside the United States in the next three months;
- U.S. citizens living in California who have a spouse who is abroad and would be banned from entering the United States because of the travel ban;
- U.S. citizens living in California who seek to bring particular visiting scholars who are nationals of one of the seven countries for the purpose of collaborating on work or scholarship or asking them to speak or participate in an academic endeavor.
If you are interested in assisting the ACLU's efforts and either fit one of these categories or know someone who does, please contact Novella Coleman at the ACLU (firstname.lastname@example.org). If communicating by email, please include "Travel Ban Lawsuit" in the email subject field. If you wish, the ACLU will maintain your anonymity.
