Established in 1979, the National Immigration Law Center is the leading national legal advocacy organization in the U.S. exclusively dedicated to defending and advancing the rights and opportunities of the most vulnerable immigrants and their loved ones. Believing that everyone living in the U.S. should have equal access to justice, resources, and opportunities that allow them to achieve their full human potential, NILC advances its mission through a racial, economic, and gender justice and equity lens.

The strategic framework guiding NILC's work focuses on three, interconnected strategies: legal and policy advocacy to advance progressive, systemic, transformational policy solutions; movement-building to help build a healthier and more powerful immigrant justice movement; and narrative and culture change to shift public debate toward the notion that - no matter where a person is born or how much money they have - everyone has an equitable stake in shaping the country's future.
