Since 1983, LCCRSF has been on the frontline of the U.S. government’s war on immigrants, representing thousands of asylum seekers in immigration courts and challenging the unjust systems and policies that result in cruel and unfair immigration practices. Through our Asylum Program, we match asylum seekers with pro bono attorneys who represent them before the San Francisco Immigration Court. Our Immigrant Justice program also includes an annual asylum seminars that provide a valuable opportunity for immigration law practitioners, pro bono attorneys, and our partners at non-profit organizations throughout the Bay Area.

The Immigrant Justice Program investigates and challenges civil rights violations against immigrants. Through strong ties with immigrant communities as well as practitioners, the Program is contacted when a systemic issue arises that unjustly affects immigrants and their communities. After a thorough investigation into the facts and the law, the Program files suits with broad-reaching implications to remedy the violations.
