At RAICES, we defend the rights of immigrants and refugees, empower individuals, families, and communities, and advocate for liberty and justice.

We are the Refugee and Immigrant Center for Education and Legal Services, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit working to promote justice for all by providing free and low-cost legal services to underserved immigrant children, families, and refugees. While our footprint and legal services are Texas-based, we advocate for immigrant communities nation-wide and we have a national voice in the ongoing fight for immigrant rights.

The best place to learn more about RAICES is www.raicestexas.org.
