Advocating for Immigrants in the Post-9/11 Era

While the hallmarks of the Immigration Project - direct services, community education and legislative advocacy - remained constant, staff focused much of their attention in this year to expanding access to our services to the diverse API community and continuing to combat the variety of punitive anti-immigrant policies that continue to be imposed.

This year the project:

  • Collaborated with API community groups such as the United Laotian Community Development, Chinatown CDC, the Filipino Bayanihan Resource Center, and the Veterans Equity Center to make immigration services more accessible.
  • Established a variety of community-based clinics in Alameda, San Mateo, and San Francisco counties.
  • Provided a full range of immigration services and advocating for immigrant rights, including combating the increasing numbers of deportations that separate families and destablize communities.
