Pro Bono Net, in close partnership with CLINIC, NILC and other leading immigration advocate organizations across the country, is proud to announce the launch of the Immigration Advocates Network: This project is made possible by funding from the Carnegie Corporation of New York, the JEHT Foundation, and Morrison & Foerster.

The Immigration Advocates Network ("IAN") is a free exciting and
innovative resource for non-profit advocates, organizers and service providers.

IAN is a collaboration of leading immigrants' rights organizations
designed to increase access to justice for low income immigrants. IAN will promote more effective and efficient communication among existing immigration organizations by providing easily accessible and comprehensive online resources in a password-protected website for legal service providers and public interest advocates.

By establishing a website for non-profit organizations with timely information and links to other sites, we will enhance our collective advocacy efforts, share information, and support the work and visibility of our members.

IAN's services to non-profit and public interest advocates include:

  • A library of substantive resources, including manuals, podcasts, online videos and web-based trainings
  • A national calendar of immigration trainings and events
  • Immigration news and practice alerts
  • Listservs and announcement lists on immigration topics

IAN's first phase will include information on family-based immigration, immigration and crimes, naturalization, raids, driver's licenses, and immigration program management.
