New Sanctuary Coalition

Keeping families together and advocating against deportations

Pro Se Clinic

New Sanctuary Coalition runs a weekly clinic staffed by non-attorney volunteers and supervised by experienced immigrants rights organizers and immigration lawyers. You do not need prior experience to participate; we will train you. The clinic helps people identify ways to get relief from deportation and detention; access other immigration-related benefits; understand their rights so they can fight their own case; apply for asylum; prepare for court appearances or interviews; and much more. 

We're seeing tremendous growth in the number of immigrants  the people we call “friends,” not clients — seeking help and we're looking for new volunteers. Join us for training, and we'll continue training you and supporting you as you help our friends at our weekly clinic.

Clinic is on Wednesday evenings from 6-9pm.

We also need volunteers during the day sometimes to help with emergency cases. If you're interested in helping with that, read more and tell us about yourself here. (Link will open in a new window)

In addition to any in-person trainings listed below we have recorded trainings and other resources (will open in a new window).

No trainings are currently scheduled. Please sign up below to hear about future trainings.

We also have a few particular skills we're always looking for - please check off any that you have.
