The U.S. government detains nearly 8,000 unaccompanied immigrant children each year. These children are separated from their communities and loved ones and face deportation alone without the assistance of family or court-appointed counsel. This project uses games to teach immigrant youth their rights so they can better understand their legal situation and effectively defend themselves in court. Games are currently being developed in collaboration with immigration attorneys and piloted with immigrant youth in the New York City area. Funding will support the production and distribution of completed games so that detained immigrant children may fully engage in the legal process and assert their legal rights.
