Migrant Rights

When people move with dignity, the world is a more just, safe, and peaceful place. The Advocates believes in - and fights for - immigration systems guided by international human rights standards and dedicated to the fair and humane treatment of all.  

Free Immigration Legal Help

We mobilize pro bono legal professionals to provide free legal help to people seeking asylum, unaccompanied children, trafficking survivors, and people in immigration detention.
