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.

Stand Up for a Fair Day in Court

9 in 10 detained immigrants face the immigration system alone. The Immigration Justice Campaign provides attorneys to immigrant children and their parents.

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. See this NPR piece detailing how legal representation changed the fate of a father who first came to the U.S. nearly two decades ago.
