For low-income immigrants facing legal challenges, help is hard to come by. 63% of immigrants facing deportation do so without an attorney. But having an attorney can make all the difference! Immigrants with an attorney are 5-and-a-half times more likely to receive relief from removal.
Our immigration system denies immigrants fundamental human rights. The current administration’s policies--building a wall, deporting millions, and closing the door on those in need of protection, to name a few--are fundamentally at odds with the values of a nation in which all people have the opportunity to live in safety with the ones they love.
Structural barriers limit access to the legal profession by immigrants and people of color.
We partner with organizations throughout the community to spread information about legal issues and to provide policy guidance.
Through innovative workshop and group-processing models, a robust pro bono attorney network, and a legal team committed to holistic services, we are able to offer high-quality services efficiently—always for free.
The legal profession needs to centralize and uplift the voices of immigrants and people of color. Through mentorship and professional development opportunities, we are fostering the next generation of social justice legal professionals.
