Take Action


Immigrant children are at risk.

Want to take action? We're looking for 250 new pro bonos to represent them.

This year, thousands of young people right here in New York will face deportation. Without an attorney, 80% of these children will be deported. But with a free lawyer from Safe Passage Project, those very same young people have a 90% chance of winning their immigration case and remaining safely in the U.S.

Together with our army of more than 400 pro bono attorneys, we already provide nearly 1,000 young refugees with a free lawyer – more than any other organization in New York. But we need to do more.

While we continue to see threats of mass deportation raids and hear horrifying accounts of conditions in migrant shelters, our team is stepping up to provide more young people than ever before with a free attorney to help them on their path to citizenship. Since January 2019, we’ve already taken on nearly 200 new clients, and we’re just getting started.

Now is the time to join the fight. We’re looking for compassionate attorneys who want to fight for children’s right to safety and stability in the U.S.

No prior immigration experience? No problem. We have the experts and the resources already in place to support you throughout your representation.

If you’re an attorney in New York and want to know more, please sign up. After you sign up, we will also share information for you to join a webinar on October 15th at 2pm to learn more about what it’s like to work on a pro bono case with Safe Passage Project.

Pro Bono Attorney Testimonials

"I have been an attorney for over 25 years, yet consider the work that I have done for Safe Passage to be among the most rewarding in my career. I am representing three wonderful young people who would be in great danger if they remained in their home countries. I feel that this work has given me an opportunity, not merely to help three children who will someday become fine American citizens, but also to strike a very small blow for what I believe is just."

"There are few things more fulfilling than helping kids who have been through so much in their life be able to remain in the United States and call it home."

“Working with the Safe Passage Project has been a tremendously rewarding experience for me. The organization has supported me each step of the way as I have represented three Guatemalan children, all from the same family and under the age of 10, in Family Court and Immigration Court.

At a time when the federal government is doing everything it can to return immigrant children to their countries of origin regardless of their personal circumstances, organizations like Safe Passage are playing a crucial role in helping pro bono attorneys like myself successfully advocate on behalf of the best interests of our immigrant children clients.”
