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.
