About us

The National Immigration Law Center (NILC)’s mission is to advance and defend the rights and opportunities of low-income immigrants. We believe that all people who live in the U.S. — regardless of their race, gender, immigration, and/or economic status — should have the opportunity to achieve their full human potential. Over the past 35 years, NILC has won landmark legal decisions protecting fundamental human and civil rights, thwarted policies that would have damaged low-income immigrant families’ opportunities, and advanced major policies that reinforce our nation’s values of equality and justice for all.

Headquartered in Los Angeles with an office in Washington, D.C., we utilize a core set of strategies — litigation, advocacy, and strategic communications — to focus on key program areas that affect the lives and well-being of low-income immigrants, including: immigration status and reform; healthy lives and economic opportunities; immigration enforcement reform and justice; and education and workforce development. We also conduct trainings, publish educational materials, and provide legal counsel and strategic advice to inform a wide range of audiences — including workers’ centers, unions, and other economic justice partners — about complex legal and policy matters affecting immigrants and to help strengthen other groups’ advocacy work.
