Read an overview of our immigrant and refugee rights work

We believe everyone deserves fair treatment, regardless of race, ethnicity, or country of origin. Unfortunately, immigrants are often excluded from other programs that offer legal services to people with low incomes. Because they may lack access to legal protections, immigrants are more likely to become victims of abuse by unscrupulous businesses and employers. Such violations undermine the well-being of everyone in the state.

Legal representation is a lifeline when there are high-stakes consequences for all family members involved. Make a gift today!
