About Us

2,000+ refugee and immigrant children in New York face deportation without a lawyer. Our mission is to get that number to zero. Safe Passage is a young organization with an entrepreneurial culture and deep appreciation for diverse backgrounds. We have doubled in size every year since 2013, are now 21 staff including 12 attorneys, and we are excited to continue our growth to support these amazing children. We are looking for attorneys, a social worker, and a development associate, to serve in our Lower Manhattan and/or Garden City Long Island offices.
