We are a 501(c)(3) non-profit protecting the rights of refugees who are being targeted by the US government.
Some of the most vulnerable immigrants seek out help at SJC because they do not know where else to turn to. They depend on us to help from start to finish. And thats what we do - SJC doesnt refer cases, we finish the hardest cases from the start.
SJCs programs include full-scope deportation defense, appeals, and federal litigation
FULL-SCOPE DEPORTATION DEFENSE
We are a nonprofit that represents immigrants and refugees in deportation proceedings. We keep families together by defending non-citizens from being deported.
MMIGRATION APPELLATE PROGRAM
We appeal erroneous and unjust decisions of immigration judges to all levels of the appellate system. We also work with cases at the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals.
UNACCOMPANIED MINOR DEFENSE
We zealously advocate for children in removal proceedings.
CRIMINAL DEFENSE OF IMMIGRANTS
We represent immigrants in criminal proceedings as well as in obtaining post conviction relief.
Mission Statement: Social Justice Collaborative (SJC) is one of the few 501(c)(3) non-profits with a mission of providing complete removal defense to low-income individuals. SJC was founded in 2012 to fill the gap in legal services being provided in the Bay Area. We provide high quality immigration services at free or substantially below-market rates
