Learn How You Can Support the Fight Against Family Detention and Family Separation

Thank you to all the attorneys who assisted the Immigration Justice Campaign in accompanying recently released families to their first ICE check-ins after being released from detention. With your support, 144 parents were accompanied to their check-ins or were provided initial consults. Thank you for stepping up to stand beside these families!

To volunteer:

The Immigration Justice Campaign, AILA and the American Immigration Council's initiative to increase pro bono representation for detained immigrants, is actively working on family separation cases, and helping families detained at the South Texas Family Residential Center (STFRC) in Dilley, Texas pass their credible fear interviews. In addition, we are working with the following partners to represent separated families and other detained immigrants around the country:

  • American Friends Service Committee, AFSC (Elizabeth, NJ)
  • Rocky Mountain Immigrant Advocacy Network, RMAIN (Aurora, CO)
  • Southern Poverty Law Center's Southeast Immigrant Freedom Initiative, SIFI (Georgia and Louisiana)
  • Northwest Immigrant Rights Project, NWIRP (Tacoma, Washington)

Opportunities to volunteer include:

  • Merits cases
  • Bond cases (remotely or in-person)
  • A week on-the-ground with the Dilley Pro Bono Project or the Southeast Immigrant Freedom Initiative
  • Legal writing, research, and interpretation opportunities
