Northwest Immigrant Rights Project (NWIRP) believes that all people deserve the opportunity to access justice, safety, and the ability to stay together with the ones they love, no matter where they were born or how much money they have.

However, many immigrants cannot attain protection, family unity, or the opportunity to provide for themselves simply because they cannot afford an attorney to help them navigate the complex United States immigration legal system.

And during this pivotal time of new immigration policies, immigrants are under more threat of deportation and lack of legal protections.

Many people don't realize that in immigration court, no one is entitled to legal representation if they cannot afford it. Even children are forced to represent themselves on their own.

NWIRP addresses this need by providing immigration legal assistance and representation to over 10,000 low-income immigrants from 130 countries every year through four offices across Washington State.

NWIRP's legal assistance and representation work has lifelong impacts on their clients and their families. NWIRP keeps families together who would otherwise be split apart by deportation, protects people from violence in their homes or home countries, and provides new opportunities in work and education.

NWIRP's values of fairness and equity extend beyond helping individuals access justice and receive legal protection. NWIRP also uses its on-the-ground legal expertise to find patterns of injustice in the immigration system, and then challenge and change those policies through impact litigation.

NWIRP also provides community education to help immigrants know their rights and the protections available to them.
