Saturdays usually are pretty quiet at the Four Corners. But on Oct. 20, the Telesca Center for Justice was a veritable beehive of activity.
Twenty-eight attorneys gave up their Saturday to assist youth at Rochester’s Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals clinic, the first in the state to be held outside of New York City. Young people and their families came from as far away as Jamestown to attend the clinic held in the Monroe County Bar Association’s continuing legal education center.
