With an $84,000 grant from the District, Briya Public Charter School is connecting immigrant children and their families with an immigration attorney. Mayor Muriel Bowser made $500,000 in grant funds available in January, and Briya is the only school among the 10 awardees. “If our families are feeling like it’s not safe to come out of their homes, they won’t be able to come to school,” says Christie McKay, Briya’s executive director.
