RAICES, the Refugee and Immigrant Center for Education and Legal Services, is a nonprofit agency that promotes justice by providing free and low-cost legal services to underserved immigrant children, families, and refugees. With more immigration lawyers than any organization in Texas, RAICES managed 37,863 cases in 2018 at no cost to their clients. Without pro-bono legal services, most RAICES clients, including children of all ages, would have to go to court alone, with zero representation. RAICES’ legal services extend from low-cost residency and citizenship services to pro-bono representation for families and children in detention. At its core, RAICES envisions a society where all people have the right to migrate and human rights are guaranteed. Learn more at www.raicestexas.org.
Generous Laughs is made possible with support from the skint.
