Membership

For 50 years, the National Immigration Project and its members have been fighting alongside those who bear the brunt of racist and immoral laws. We are proud of our history seeking justice for the most marginalized.

We are continuing to build a political and legal home for our members — the place where you can get answers to difficult legal issues, learn skills and tools, get connected to broader advocacy efforts, and enjoy the company of a like-minded community of advocates and lawyers.

Come find your people!

What the National Immigration Project Means to our Members

“National Immigration Project staff and members are uniquely generous in time and spirit. This is the place to get nonjudgmental help on a legal issue from incredibly smart lawyers, get mentored when you‘re starting out, get trained throughout your career, and get connected to the bigger picture fight. Maybe just as important, sometimes you just need a supportive space to vent about the injustices and frustrations we see and experience everyday with people who share your values. Thank you for creating that space, NIP!”
— National Immigration Project member

“NIP provides me everything I need to be my best immigration lawyer self, and I could never continue, and succeed at times, in advocacy without NIP as my ‘backup’. I am forever grateful for spot-on incredible intellectually-inspired help for decades. The work is tough, but always, NIP members come from everywhere to help one another. I find that to be critically important for my solo practice, working with the absolute best colleagues! 1000 thanks.”
