Program areas at RAICES

Raices direct client services are anchored by legal counsel, rights training, fee assistance, and direct representation for disenfranchised migrant communities navigating the complex and challenging u.s. immigration system, including asylum-seeking families and unaccompanied children incarcerated within the nation's expansive detention facilities. In 2019, raices paid 9.6m in immigration bonds to release 884 people from detention, opened nearly 12,000 pro bono legal representation cases, and assisted 222 newly arrived Refugee parents and children to lay the foundation for successful resettlement. Raices also launched its litigation practice intended to defend client needs and interests at the federal level. Raices provides a holistic approach to care, empowering legal service recipients with culturally-competent, trauma-informed social services on a rolling referral basis and managing Refugee reception and placement. Accessible services include onsite client needs assessment, case management, cash assistance, transit for recently released detainees, and a national hotline to connect migrants with local community resources. In 2019, raices established an advocacy and community organizing team to inform and lead the national conversation on migrant justice, working in coordination with direct service providers to identify and amplify the most urgent human rights concerns facing migrant communities. Raices educates and mobilizes the public around issues and campaigns, pushes for pro- Immigrant local and national policies, and engages in narrative change work that reframes how immigration is represented in the media and amongst lawmakers.
