New Voice Immigration Assistance Services is a religious non-profit organization recognized and authorized by the Department of Justice to practice immigration law. Volunteers can offer visits, write letter to those in immigration detention centers. Also can offer their legal expertise to support the release of people in immigration detention centers.
Many people, regardless of age or capability, have to represent themselves in immigration court. Although immigration court hearings are open to the public, few people witness these proceedings. The Human Rights Defender Project Court Observers help bring transparency and accountability to this system. By participating in this project, Court Observers attend hearings and report on issues of concern including access to counsel, family and community support, and interpretation; the manner of arrest; and the ability of individuals to raise defenses to deportation.
