This go ‘round, we’re not highlighting a local nonprofit, but this organization felt too important not to feature.
The National Immigration Law Center (NILC) plays an integral role in ensuring immigrants have access to the resources they need to thrive.
Established in 1979, the National Immigration Law Center (NILC) is one of the leading organizations in the U.S. exclusively dedicated to defending and advancing the rights of immigrants with low income.
At NILC, we believe that all people who live in the U.S. should have the opportunity to achieve their full potential. Over the years, we’ve been at the forefront of many of the country’s greatest challenges when it comes to immigration issues, and we play a major leadership role in addressing the real-life impact of policies that affect the ability of low-income immigrants to prosper and thrive.
Within the NILC is the NILC Immigrant Justice Fund, a branch of the organization dedicated to building political power on the local, state, and federal level by:
Creating stronger champions for inclusive policies and platforms.
Building legislative and lobbying campaigns to secure policy wins to help immigrant families thrive.
Now more than ever, this organization is an important one to support as human rights are being denied country-wide. You can support in a variety of ways:
DONATE: Both tax deductible and non-tax deductible donations
LEARN MORE: Attend a training that can inform you more on the issues at hand and how to help and be socially conscious.
