We ensure immigrants are treated fairly at airports by connecting them with teams of volunteer lawyers.
The airportlawyer.org project is co-sponsored by Puget Sound Legal, P.C. along with many corporate and community partners.
We are an informal team of lawyers, technologists, and tech-lawyers. This project is a labor of love by a team of individuals and organizations concerned about the treatment of vulnerable immigrants and refugees. We saw an opportunity to ensure that the vast volunteer resources being contributed to the immigration crisis are deployed efficiently and effectively. We connect families in need of assistance with lawyers who can help.
How we help.
Thousands of volunteer lawyers mobilized at airports nationwide to defend individuals impacted by the Trump Administration's travel bans. Our tool allows community members to notify us when an individual is arriving from a "travel ban" country. We share this information with groups of volunteer lawyers who monitor arrivals at airports.
