Support our Statewide Immigrant Legal Defense Fund
Donations made to this fund will contribute to the Statewide Immigrant Legal Defense Fund. This will be a public/private fund similar to the Denver Immigrant Legal Services Fund (DILSF). The administering agent will review grant applications and choose grantees. Through this statewide fund, any Coloradan with a deportation case would qualify to receive a free lawyer if they cannot afford one if sufficient funds are available.
This statewide fund will advance a universal model for representation that replicates a public defender model for immigration court. This means that no one would be turned away based on their likeliness to win their case. Everyone means everyone. If passed, Colorado would join other states like Oregon, New York, Illinois, New Jersey, and California in standing up for due-process and dignity for all.
