Are you a member of a faith community? Do you own a business and want to learn more about how to support your community? RAICES can work with you to learn more about becoming a Sanctuary Congregation, Business, School, or Restaurant!
We can support your organization by providing:
An Accompaniment Program is a method through which allied individuals, organizations, and congregations provide solidarity to individuals facing deportation or contact with immigration officials for which they would like support. The process supported by RAICES and local sanctuary networks staff, the congregation and family build mutual, long-term relationships to stop the deportation, serve as a witness in spaces of injustice, and collectively grow as community leaders in the fight for immigrant rights. Sign up for the RAICES accompaniment network and we will share opportunities in your community!
The Karnes Pro Bono Project was launched in 2014 by a group of attorneys committed to serving the legal needs of women and children in family detention. The project has since come under the direction of RAICES, providing free legal services to detainees in the Karnes Detention Center. The detained women and children are forced to pass a credible or reasonable fear interview before they can be released to pursue asylum. The failure to meet requirements for asylum can lead to deportation, which can mean a return to danger and even death.
Become a Karnes Pro-Bono volunteer and help women and children who are detained receive the help they deserve!
Volunteers, interns, and community groups in all our Texas cities and as remote volunteers in other locations make our work possible. RAICES has over 300 volunteers who provide practical support to immigrants and refugees, pro bono legal assistance, translation, and many other opportunities.
