Thousands of immigrants face deportation proceedings without an attorney. Yet courts expect them to know immigration law and procedure, as well as adapt to life in a new country. Since 2016, Esperanza’s Community Education Program for Unrepresented Immigrants has ensured that over 7,000 immigrants and their families did not feel alone in this process. Today we ask for your help because this vital resource is in jeopardy. By providing even a small donation, you are investing in our work to empower immigrants to defend themselves in court!

"I thank you so much, may God bless you. I feel more at peace because now I have a work permit. This is a great benefit because everywhere I go, they ask for authorization to work.
I feel at peace knowing that I can work freely."

work permit workshops.
