The Immigrant Advocacy Program offers free legal assistance to low-income immigrants in the
areas of employment, consumer, and housing law. Our bilingual staff members educate
Virginia’s immigrants about their rights under the law, and teach them how to protect
themselves from being cheated in the first place. We file cases on behalf of our clients in state
and federal court, and seek out cases that will maximize the impact of our limited resources for
the good of the immigrant client communities that we serve. Litigation is a powerful tool for
leveling the playing field and helping our clients find the justice and fair treatment they deserve.
