83rd Annual Celebration

Abraham Lincoln Brigade Archives

The Museum of the City of New York

$10.00 - $50.00

Please join us for the 83rd Annual Celebration as we commemorate the courageous volunteers of the Lincoln Brigade and honor the remarkable work of the Immigration Justice Campaign in support of its efforts to increase access to legal counsel for thousands of immigrants held in detention centers on the southern border of the United States.

The Immigration Justice Campaign believes strongly that every person deserves a fair day in court. Yet, 86% of detained immigrants are without an attorney. Although the campaign is a project of two large associations of US attorneys, its primary focus is on access to legal services at the border. Working exclusively with volunteers, the Immigration Justice Campaign places people on the ground, at the border, inside the ICE detention centers and stands before judges in makeshift courtrooms, to ensure that arriving migrants and those with asylum claims are not subject to the government’s cruel deportation system that has no purpose but to criminalize them.
