Chatham Community Library Now a Partnering Site for the Virtual Justice Project

Post Date:07/13/2017 12:25 PM

Chatham Community Library (CCL) in Pittsboro is now an official partnering site for the Virtual Justice Project (VJP) administered by North Carolina Central University’s School of Law.  Originally established to address limited access to legal services for low income and marginalized communities, the VJP offers legal information sessions made possible through the use of high definition videoconferencing equipment. CCL is currently one of seven public libraries in NC to become a VJP partnering site.

CCL will host its first VJP session on Wednesday, July 19th, from 6:00-8:00pm in the Double Study Room located in the rear of the library. Wednesday’s session is entitled “Immigration 101” and will feature a panel discussion on legal and policy issues of immigration law followed by a question and answer session. Unless otherwise stated, all VJP sessions are conducted in English.

While registration is not required for this event, seating is limited.  This event is free and open to the public.
