Omid Advocate’s unique approach to legal services is to bring community-organizing processes to a traditionally service-oriented agency. Our goal is to empower our clients to aspire to be active in organizing the larger Iranian community around social issues relevant to their legal case. In support of this objective, we encourage clients to be active in the progression of their legal case and create safe spaces for clients to share their feelings about their case through workshops and referrals to social and holistic mental health workers. With these efforts we seek to empower individual clients, raise consciousness about social and legal issues facing the Iranian community, and build a power base capable of creating community change.
