The primary goal of the Justice Campaign is to increase access to legal counsel for thousands of immigrants held in detention centers. To achieve this, the Campaign is building a broad network of pro bono allies to serve the many thousands of detained individuals who would otherwise go unrepresented and training private lawyers with new tactics and strategies to enable them to vigorously defend immigrants facing removal. Your skills are needed whether or not you have removal defense experience. Justice Campaign volunteers will receive training, mentorship, and other support throughout their volunteer experience.
Time and Place:
Volunteer projects can be done remotely/online, from multiple locations, and in some cases in one specific place for a day or two, or up to one week. The Justice Campaign and its partners currently need volunteers to help individuals detained in the following locations:
- Denver, CO
- Elizabeth, NJ
- Dilly, TX
- Georgia & Louisiana
- Youngstown, OH
- Harlingen, TX
Special Skills Needed:
Some opportunities are for pro bono attorneys, while others seek volunteers with a wide variety of skills to help with things like interpretation or to provide professional mental health evaluations for trauma survivors.
