Pro Bono Response to the Muslim Travel Ban

Airport Clinics served families and passengers impacted by the Muslim travel ban

In Jan. 2017, OneJustice was honored to serve as the national point of contact and provide operational and pro bono management support to the coalitions of legal services, immigration, and civil rights nonprofits that worked together to staff the legal clinics at LAX, SFO, SJC and Oakland in response to the executive order and travel bans. 

We are so grateful to the hundreds of attorneys and community members who volunteered - as well as everyone who donated food, supplies, equipment and more to support these efforts.  Thank you all!

Update as of September 26, 2017:

The President has issued a proclamation indefinitely banning travelers from eight countries, including five of the original countries targeted in January 2017. Due to this new order, the Supreme Court has cancelled oral arguments in the case concerning the second travel ban.
OneJustice opposes any attempt by the administration to implement a Muslim travel ban in any form.

The Airport Clinic Coalitions:

These are the nonprofits that formed the backbone of the legal services response at the airports, and whose attorneys are the heroes of this story. We strongly encourage you to donate to them directly to support their work!
