Pillsbury, along with a broad coalition of over a hundred other firms and companies, has partnered up with Lawyers for Good Government (L4GG) to launch the Temporary Protection Status (TPS) Pro Bono Project for Ukraine to provide legal services for Ukrainian nationals seeking immigration assistance.

Eligible Ukrainian nationals will be offered free legal assistance from pro bono attorneys who can help answer legal questions and assist in applying for TPS. TPS is a form of immigration relief offered to foreign nationals in the United States whose home countries are considered unsafe and provides the right to live and work in the United States for a temporary period. The Biden Administration designated Ukraine for TPS in early March 2022 and has declared that Ukrainian nationals who entered the U.S. on or before April 11, 2022 are eligible to apply.

The TPS Pro Bono Project for Ukraine is an initiative of L4GG’s Project Corazon, which provides legal assistance to asylum seekers, with a focus on serving particularly vulnerable asylum seekers, such as those with medical or psychological conditions, disabilities, LGBTQ+ individuals, and third-language speakers.
