At the Immigrant Rights Program (IRP) in Newark, N.J., our goal is to achieve policies that respect the rights and dignity of all immigrants, including a fair and humane national immigration policy.

The Immigrant Rights Program’s successful integration of legal services, advocacy and organizing has made a dramatic difference in the lives of immigrants in New Jersey and beyond by ensuring that immigrant voices are heard in policy debates, by assisting immigrants with challenging immigration cases, and by changing the narrative about immigration issues to influence policy.
