An Industry of Misery
The Deportation & Detention system of the United States exploits Immigrants and refugees by isolating them from lawyers, locking them without hope in remote detention centers, and separating them from their families and communities.
Every case that should win, does win, every time, everywhere
We leverage technology, law, and activism to advance immigrant and refugee justice
We deploy limited, time-bounded interventions at immigrant/refugee crisis points to provide direct representation, mitigate detention, and create opportunities for partners & allies to engage in longer-term interventions.

How We Work.
No One Goes it Alone; we are in this together and we will solve it together. We engage in authentic collaboration.
We rely on each other and our systems, to get things done right at the right time, learning all the time to be better and make it better.
We move fast yet we don’t hurry because while we operate in hotspots and hostile conditions, we solve for the crisis.
Hardest Place first, Hardest Things First: our priorities are to help those who are more vulnerable and where resources are scarce. for system change
