We want to empower those who fight for immigrants, whether it’s in the courtroom or with your local community group and beyond. VECINA seeks to give you the tools to stand up for those who need a voice.

Attorney Mentorship

Many attorneys around the country want to help asylum-seekers by taking a pro bono case, but don’t have the necessary experience and guidance to provide zealous and confident representation. VECINA mentors are nationally recognized experts to attorneys who have taken on pro bono cases.

Community Education

Misinformation can be one of the worst enemies of advocacy, as it’s difficult to determine the truth. VECINA representatives can host a community discussion or speak at your event regarding immigration law or immigrant justice and advocacy.

Immigration Law Training

While hiring is very taxing on nonprofit organizations, training can be just as difficult. Nonprofits can hand off this task to VECINA, whether for a one-time or ongoing training.
