Safe Passage Project

Thousands of unaccompanied children make the dangerous journey from Central America to the US seeking safety from violence and poverty. The vast majority qualify for relief, but are unlikely to win their cases without legal representation and therefore risk deportation. Safe Passage Project provides high quality legal representation by trained pro bono attorneys. 2,000+ refugee and immigrant children in New York face deportation without a lawyer. The mission is to get that number to zero.
