Guided by Dolores Street's core values of dignity, resilience, solidarity, inclusivity, and redistributed power, our individual representation is integrated with advocacy work, in proud partnership with our many partners.
- Amplifying Client Voices: We prioritize our clients' power to make change, from unaccompanied minors speaking at City Hall about the urgent needs of unrepresented children fighting deportation on their own, to individuals with physical and mental disabilities educating journalists about abuses in immigration detention.
- Building San Francisco's Immigrant Community Power: We work to build the collective power of our city's immigrant communities, through the San Francisco Immigrant Legal and Education Network (SFILEN), and Full Rights, Equality & Empowerment - San Francisco (FREE-SF). Together, we push San Francisco to reaffirm its commitment to Due Process for All, invest in services for education and defense of our immigrant communities, and fight back against federal threats to our city.
- Resisting Unjust Detention and Deportation Policies: We bring our clients' experiences to fights for systemic change, including litigating for transparency about immigration raids, joining national advocates to challenge due process violations such as prolonged detention, and resisting new assaults on immigrant rights.
