Join the Northern California Rapid Immigration Response Network

In anticipation of increased enforcement actions by the current administration, a Northern California Rapid Immigration Response Network has been created and has been taking steps to prepare our legal community. The Lawyers’ Committee is engaged in this work and welcomes you to participate.

In order to assess volunteer interest and capacity, the network has put together a survey for Attorneys and BIA Reps.  If you are interested in learning more about the network and getting involved fill out this survey. Based on the results, plans will be refined and the network will provide follow up information in the coming weeks about volunteer opportunities, training, and the structure of our program.

Please check the Northern California Rapid Immigration Response Network website to find out more about the program and volunteer roles.
