Given the evolving situation regarding COVID-19, for the safety of our staff and volunteers, HIAS has suspended all in-person client meetings and all non-essential travel, including delegations to the border. We are however still actively recruiting volunteers to help asylum seekers remotely. Please take a look at these volunteer opportunities below.
We continue to see the devastating effects of the current U.S. immigration policy. HIAS has launched an emergency response program to ensure that asylum seekers have access to legal representation. Volunteer opportunities include:
Spanish-speaking individuals can volunteer remotely to support HIAS' Border Response Team in Ciudad Juarez, Mexico, providing services to asylum seekers. Find out more and sign up here.
If you are a lawyer and interested in helping asylum seekers remotely, find out more here.
