Our Mission

PIRC was founded in 1996 on the principles of service and access to justice in response to the detention of the refugees of the Golden Venture.  Our principles guide PIRC’s programs, protecting immigrants’ rights to freedom and opportunity in the United States, giving voice to the most vulnerable immigrants and their families.  PIRC provides free, effective legal representation, legal services, education and advocacy to help immigrants obtain or protect their legal status.
