Together, we will raise awareness, support immigrants’ rights, and fund life-changing legal services in our community. We are seeing unprecedented attacks on our immigrant neighbors and those seeking safety in the United States. Having a lawyer can prevent deportation, keep families together, and ensure everyone knows their rights. Your participation in this race, and any additional donation you are able to make to NIJC, will fund legal services for families who face separation and individuals—including women, men, and children fleeing harm—and community outreach and education. REGISTER NOW!
