Migrant Rights

Our Work

When people migrate 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.  

Each year, The Advocates for Human Rights works with pro bono attorneys to provide free legal services to more than 1,000 migrants who are victims of human rights abuses. We also work to reform the legal system itself by documenting and reporting on human rights abuses and advocating for better immigration laws. Our extensive education and training resources help educators, individuals, and communities understand the dynamics of migration through a human rights lens.

How You Can Help

The Advocates recruits and trains volunteer attorneys, legal assistants, court observers, and interpreters to help individuals who have fled persecution in their countries of origin.
