The Community Development Project supports community-based organizations and other organizing groups and their members on issues relating to immigrants’ rights. We use community education, direct legal services and legislative and policy advocacy to advance the rights of immigrants and their family members.
We staff legal clinics at community partner organizations and conduct Know-Your-Rights workshops. We also represent individuals on matters including applications for T and U visas, Special Immigrant Juvenile Status, Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, Temporary Protected Status, employment authorization, adjustment of status, naturalization and more. We currently support Adhikaar, African Communities Together, Chinese Staff and Workers’ Association, Damayan Migrant Workers' Association, DRUM - South Asian Organizing Center, National Mobilization Against Sweatshops, New Immigrant Community Empowerment, and other groups.
