Our Immigrants' Rights team uses community education, direct legal services, and legislative and policy advocacy to advance the rights of low-income immigrants connected to community organizing efforts. We aim to protect individuals from detention and deportation, keep families together, and build power in immigrant communities. We assist with a wide range of immigration case types including citizenship, T and U visas, asylum, Special Immigrant Juvenile status, and much more. Our attorneys are also involved in efforts to support the development of immigrant community defense networks, challenge harsh immigration laws and enforcement practices, promote language access and combat immigration fraud.
Our current partners include 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 Worker’s Justice Project.
