LAS AMERICAS IMMIGRANT ADVOCACY CENTER
Since opening our doors in 1987, Las Americas Immigrant Advocacy Center has served nearly 40,000 people from over 77 different countries. Our vision is that of a country where all immigrants have access to high-quality legal representation based on the principles of justice and human rights. As an El Paso based non-profit we see the second highest number of people crossing into the United States by land and are committed every day to represent.

Causes: Community Advocacy, Migration, Social Justice

Keeping Immigrants, Refugees and Families Safe, Sustainable and Together

Las Americas focuses on providing advocacy, legal representation, and education to low-income immigrants in the El Paso, Texas, community. Each day, the dedicated staff at Las Americas work on the front lines of the most severe issues facing asylum seekers, immigrants and those forced to Remain In Mexico. Las Americas continues to advocate for the release of vulnerable individuals and populations inside detention centers including: pregnant women, LGBTQ+ folks, and individuals with physical and mental disabilities, including ailing children. Today, Las Americas continues to be one of the very few non-profit legal service providers to assist low-income immigrants in the El Paso region.

Even During a Pandemic, The Fight Continues

With 7 months of working from home we stay committed to serving our mission while also prioritizing the health and safety of our clients, staff and volunteers. During quarantine our team has:

  • Released over 12 children from hotels (aka secret locations where children are being held without representation)

  • Freed over 50 people from detention where people are exposed to COVID-19 and constant medical neglect

  • And served over 500 people in our provided services as a whole

If You Want Peace, Work For Justice

This El Paso Giving Day your donations will help us:

  • Provide Free Legal Intakes To Immigrants and Refugees Who Are Detained

  • Represent Asylum Seekers Including Those Forced To Remain In Mexico

  • Assist Victims and Survivors of Domestic Violence and Trafficking

As we continue to see an increase in the numbers of individuals and families in need of our services on both sides of the border, it is unwavering activism like yours that has made our work this year possible and there is still so much more to be done. These may be unprecedented times, but we can’t forget that our collective action holds enormous power. Please join the fight.
