How You Can Help
Please join our community of committed, fearless volunteers! There are so many ways for you to engage, from representing a detained asylum seeker to spending a week in Texas with a volunteer team. We also have remote opportunities through our remote bond teams—learn more here. Some opportunities are for pro bono attorneys, while others seek volunteers with a wide variety of skills to help with things like interpretation or to provide professional mental health evaluations for trauma survivors.

We Need You!Only 14% of immigrants in detention have access to counsel. For certain isolated detention centers, that number plunges to a mere 6%. Please join our movement to assist immigrants in need by learning about our local partners and volunteering your time.
