About Us

Free Migration Project (FMP) works at the intersection of law and community organizing to promote freedom of movement as a basic human right. Founded in 2016, FMP represents immigrant clients in their legal proceedings, provides legal support and training to organizers and advocates, engages in public education and outreach, litigates in the public interest, and advocates for fair and open immigration laws.

We currently provide representation for individuals and families in approximately 90 immigration matters, including applications for citizenship, permanent residence, asylum, and family reunification, as well as deportation defense and federal appeals. 

FMP provides support to the National Sanctuary Collective, a nationwide network of sanctuary campaigns, and is a member of the Shut Down Berks Coalition, which organizes to end family detention in Pennsylvania. Since 2019, we have coordinated a legal response to the egregious civil fines ICE issued against sanctuary leaders around the country. In November, we sponsored the third annual Open Borders Conference. Last year, we also launched ImmigrationInfo.org, a free, fully bilingual, online immigration legal resource. In June, we mobilized with the community and members of City Council to stop the private medical deportation of a client. We are now working with community partners and elected officials to push for policy changes to regulate this abhorrent practice.
