Local Action Map
Local Action Map Project
Looking to do something concrete to help solve the problems faced by far too many of our nation’s immigrants, particularly those who are poor, frightened, and seeking asylum in the United States?
This map shows you where you can donate your time and talents to helping immigrants caught up in the immigration system through accompaniment, detention visitation, translation, and other forms of advocacy.
Please note this map is a WORK IN PROGRESS. Please help us expand it and keep it updated. If you know of an organization or network in your area that we should add, please complete this form so we can add your information to ours! Thank you!
