Public Counsel envisions a world where all (im)migrants live with dignity, power, and opportunity.
Since the dawn of humanity, people have migrated to find new opportunities, flee persecution, and seek safety and refuge. Yet, our nation’s broken immigration system harms untold numbers of people seeking sanctuary and looking to build a better life. Public Counsel practices holistic, trauma-informed advocacy, recognizing that our clients come to us with extraordinary strengths, but also vulnerability due to the violence many have experienced through forced migration and our dysfunctional immigration system. Our team of advocates collaborates with immigrant clients and communities to fight fearlessly for legal protections and a just immigration system.
