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.
For over a decade our solutions have helped thousands of immigrants identify their eligibility for immigration relief and become U.S. Citizens. Through the years we have built partnerships with hundreds of nonprofits and cultivated a national network of advocates dedicated to immigrants’ rights. Our tools prioritize collaborative and equitable design, data privacy, and language justice. We are proud of the recognition we’ve received over the years for our leading edge tech.
More than 500,000 immigrants have used a Justicia Lab tool to connect to legal assistance, access a form or immigration relief, or learn how to protect themselves and their families.

Justice in New York
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.
After a natural disaster, underprivileged individuals and communities especially face an uphill battle to access disaster aid. Many face legal issues directly caused or made worse by the disaster. We develop and host self-help tools and information for communities impacted by disasters, and facilitate collaboration, networking, and resources to legal advocates engaged in disaster recovery efforts.
Many seniors, but particularly those living on the economic margins, are vulnerable to issues such as financial exploitation, abuse or eviction. 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.
