Northwest Immigrant Rights Project

Northwest Immigrant Rights Project strives for justice and equity for all persons, regardless of where they were born.

Northwest Immigrant Rights Project (NWIRP) is a nationally-recognized legal services organization founded in 1984. Each year, NWIRP provides direct legal assistance in immigration matters to over 10,000 low-income people from over 150 countries, speaking over 60 different languages and dialects. NWIRP also strives to achieve systemic change to policies and practices affecting immigrants through impact litigation, public policy work, and community education. NWIRP serves the community from four offices in Washington State in Seattle, Granger, Tacoma, and Wenatchee.

We want to extend our gratitude to the hosts of Friday's NWIRP fundraiser at the Neptune Theater for a hugely successful and enjoyable evening. Thank you Kelly Evans, Cyndi Lewis and Marty Loesch, Heather and Chris Mefford, Kristen and Bill McSherry and Mary and Fred Williams for your leadership and your commitment to immigrant rights.

We also want to thank Port of Seattle Commissioner Courtney Gregoire for speaking, former clients Ronald Alvarado Garcia and Maikol Alvarado for sharing their story with everyone, and all of the local businesses and organizations who donated food, drinks, and raffle items.

And finally, a sincere thank you to everyone who came to the event and donated so generously to NWIRP.

We are so grateful for our steadfast and growing community of support.

Court Refuses to Reinstate Travel Ban, Dealing Trump Another Legal Loss

nytimes.com

Breaking:

The Trump administration's unconstitutional executive order was dealt another loss by a 3-judge panel from the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals.

Two appointees of George W. Bush have now ruled against the ban, further highlighting that this is not a partisan issue, but a constitutional one.

We're thrilled to be one of the beneficiaries of "The Revolution Will Be Harmonized" - a great event this Friday night featuring the Seattle Labor Chorus, Anzanga Marimba Ensemble, Orchestra Afrisound, Naomi Wachira, and Soyaya! Thank you to the Columbia City Theater, Grand Daddy Purple, and Sadza.com!
