Esperanza Immigrant Rights Project is a project of Catholic Charities of Los Angeles. Over the past 15 years, Esperanza Immigrant Rights Project has become one of the leading immigration-focused public interest organizations in the country. Esperanza is made up of a team of passionate staff, interns, and volunteers who work together to advance the rights of vulnerable immigrants through education, representation, and advocacy.
Our vision is to inspire hope and advance social justice for immigrants.
Our mission is to serve some of the most vulnerable people in the Los Angeles Area – immigrants facing deportation from the U.S. At Esperanza we believe that immigrant rights are human rights.
