To support legal representation and community legal education in school, workplace, and community settings for undocumented immigrants in Brooklyn.

Center for Family Life

For the Sanctuary Families Project, which supports Sunset Park immigrant parents at risk of deportation and mobilizes local Brooklyn community member allies to create long-term guardianship and child care plans for immigrant children living in Brooklyn.

Safe Horizon

For Safe Horizon’s Immigration Law Project (ILP) to expand services to immigrant victims of crime, abuse, domestic violence, trafficking, and torture in Brooklyn—particularly those with complex immigration matters, at risk of being removed from the United States. Funds will also increase training for frontline staff at community-based social service agencies so that they are informed on current immigration policies and practices. This includes staff at local hospitals, schools, shelters, and places of worship.

UnLocal

For a collaboration with fellow IRF grantees Queer Detainee Empowerment Project, BAJI, DRUM, and Make the Road New York for a convening on efforts to abolish immigrant detention centers in New York state

New Sanctuary Coalition

For person-to-person support to hundreds of immigrants facing detention and deportation. This includes staffing a pro se legal clinic; maintaining a bond fund to free immigrants being held in in private, for-profit, overcrowded detention centers; and expanding its community-based, citywide “Sanctuary Hood” program to organize safe spaces for immigrants at more than 100 churches, and countless businesses and homes.
