About Us

Ravi Ragbir launched NSC Community Legal Defense on January 11, 2019, the anniversary of his unlawful detention in retaliation for his activism in support of immigrant rights. NSC Defense is an important step in the Sanctuary Movement’s relentless fight to reform U.S. immigration laws to promote fairness and justice. 

NSC Defense provides essential support to empower the community to aggressively fight to preserve family unity and ensure due process for all. Legal Directors Sarah Gillman and Gregory Copeland lead NSC Defense’s day-to-day efforts, defending against detention and deportation, and rapidly responding to protect the dignity and rights of community members.

NSC Defense is committed to supporting community and building community. It partners with law school clinics, pro bono law firms, community based organization, and elected officials to stand together in fighting for immigrant rights. NSC Defense is unique in that it is truly a community embedded legal defense effort, driven by a direct-services providers ethos in zealously protecting our communities rights against racist, xenophobic, and unlawful attacks that violate the law and human decency.
