We are thrilled to share our latest report with you. “Building the Resistance: Innovation Law Lab Impact Report” is now available online.
The mass incarceration and deportation of immigrant communities of color has long been underway in the United States. With the election of President Donald Trump, what few safeguards existed for immigrants and refugees are now under attack. The need for scalable immigrant representation models and sites of resistance is greater than ever before.
Our impact report captures the collaborative work we have done over the past 18 months. Some of the highlights include:
- Established four Centers of Excellence across the country, which provide pro bono representation for families formerly held in family detention centers
- Launched BorderX, our model to scale representation of adult immigrants in detention
- Trained 296 attorneys
- Placed over 70 pro bono asylum cases affecting over 150 people
- Been recognized by Financial Times as one of the most innovative legal organizations in North America
