Volunteer

Welcome! Thank you for joining our community of committed, fearless volunteers! There are so many ways for you to engage, from representing a person in detention with their asylum case or their bond hearing, to providing interpretation for legal representation, to supporting people in detention as a non-attorney visitor. Some opportunities are for pro bono attorneys, others are for volunteers with a wide variety of skills.

Find the opportunity that is right for you and apply today! A member of our staff will be in touch soon after you submit your application.

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.
