New York Lawyers for the Public Interest Releases Guidance to Nonprofits Regarding Immigration Enforcement
The current administration has launched a marked and terrifying increase in aggressive immigration enforcement causing nonprofits and service providers to question how to continue effective operations and ensure that their immigrant clients have access to their services. New York Lawyers for the Public Interest (NYLPI) is pleased to announce the release of a special guide that outlines best practices for nonprofits when assisting and protecting immigrant clients in this new era.
With help from their pro bono partners, Paul, Weiss, Rifkind, Wharton & Garrison LLP and Stroock & Stroock & Lavan LLP, an advisory by Northwest Immigrant Rights Project, and valuable input of many allies, NYLPI has developed these guidelines to answer key questions raised by nonprofits and service providers. As one of the first comprehensive documents to be created on this topic, NYLPI’s Guidance to Nonprofits Regarding Immigration Enforcement aims to assist members of the nonprofit community in navigating complex legal questions and provide guidance on specific scenarios.
Informed nonprofits are thriving nonprofits. NYLPI’s shared goal is to ensure that every individual can live with access to the support that they need to succeed in our sanctuary city.
New York Lawyers for the Public Interest (NYLPI) is seeking applications for the Bingham McCutchen Children’s Education Fellowship in its Disability Justice (DJ) Program.
