Story

For over 20 years New York Justice for Our Neighbors (NY JFON) has been welcoming immigrants into our communities with compassion, dignity, and love by providing free, high-quality immigration legal services to immigrants in need, educating communities of faith and the public about the immigration system, and advocating for immigrant rights.  

 Thank you for supporting this mission and joining us for the Virtual Gala for Immigrant Justice. We're celebrating the immigrant neighbors we have represented and their resiliency in the face of all obstacles, especially through the current pandemic. This 21st Anniversary Gala will feature words from Bishop Thomas J. Bickerton; commentary from our superstar attorneys TJ Mills, Alexis Duecker, and Samantha Blecher; musical offerings from Jorge Lockward and friends; and, of course, videos of the people with whom we stand in solidarity in this work:  our immigrant clients.  Join us for an hour of inspiration and fun on November 12 at 7pm!

[Meet the NY JFON staff and attorneys that make this work possible]

General tickets for this event are free and your generous donations are greatly appreciated. Did you know the average legal costs for NY JFON's immigration cases is about $375? Your donations help cover those costs so immigrants in need can focus on starting a new life without being burdened by costly legal bills and added stress. Supporting NY JFON is an act of solidarity, accompanying immigrants on their journey towards justice. 

We invite you to read the stories from our team members, each one has a unique story and connection to the work of NY JFON. You can join any of these teams when you make a donation. All donations will go to the same great cause, but we'll have some friendly competition between the teams. Think you have a strong network of friends and families passionate about immigrant justice?
