Our initiatives combine the power of specialized legal experts and advocates to bring the tools of justice to immigrants, the elderly, disaster survivors, and other vulnerable populations
For more than 15 years, Pro Bono Net and our programs have played a key role in mobilizing and networking the legal community to assist the legal needs of disaster survivors. We create and host resources to strengthen the work of organizations and advocates working to advance equity, rights and resilience in communities impacted by climate-driven and other disasters.
Many older adults, but particularly those living on the economic margins, are vulnerable to issues such as financial exploitation, abuse or housing instability. We create online tools that power new models of collaboration to serve the legal needs of older Americans, including those who are homebound, disabled or isolated.
The Immigration Advocates Network (IAN) expands access to immigration legal resources and information through collaboration and technology. IAN was created in 2007 by leading immigrants' rights organizations, to increase access to justice for low-income immigrants and strengthen the capacity of organizations serving them.
New York State has long been a leader in the access to justice community and serves as a model for states around the country. From New York City to rural upstate communities, Pro Bono Net's programs have played a transformative role in how legal help reaches the underserved across the state.
