Who We Are

UnLocal, Inc. is dedicated to providing legal representation and community education to New York City’s immigrant communities. Our mission is emboldened and steadfast during this tumultuous time in history.

Help Us Expand Capacity

We need your help! President-elect Donald Trump asserted throughout his entire campaign that he would have the toughest administration on undocumented immigrants in the history of the United States. Anti-immigrant legislation will likely pass by early next year, so let's stand together right now and build the capacity of our programs to prepare the immigrant community for the challenging times ahead.

Together, we can expand UnLocal’s capacity to provide more immigrants with access to legal representation and education. In 2017, we want to hire one additional staff attorney, expand our College Access Program for undocumented high school students, and launch our volunteer program.

Our Work

Support Our Program Areas

LEGAL REPRESENTATION

UnLocal takes on some of the most challenging immigration cases in New York City. We need your help right now to maximize the longevity of our legal services. Donate today so that undocumented immigrant families and individuals have access to legal representation before an anti-immigrant government agenda is initiated next year.

COMMUNITY EDUCATION

UnLocal collaborates with local leaders and community-based organizations including churches, schools, and workplaces to provide presentations on immigration law followed by immigration legal consultations. Spreading knowledge about this information is vital to the survival of the immigrant community who are not otherwise accessing competent immigration legal help. We need immediate support in order to continue our citywide educational outreach.

Our Impact

With immigration reform at a standstill, getting accurate information about immigration options to the community is a key priority for MASA. UnLocal has partnered with MASA to deliver valuable information to the Latino and Mexican Spanish-speaking immigrant community, helping to prevent families from falling victim to unscrupulous notarios and private attorneys who take advantage of the hopes and dreams of undocumented immigrants. ... This is especially valuable at a time when there are very few opportunities to access free immigration services among those who need this representation most.

UnLocal has been a tremendous source of support to the students and families at our school. They are always readily available to respond to our questions, and to speak to students and their families….UnLocal's commitment to the immigrant community is so critical and necessary during times of so much anti-immigrant sentiment. I am grateful to have a trustworthy organization like them to always reach out to during times of need.

UnLocal holds a very special place at IMI Corona. UnLocal is deeply committed to the struggles of our community and has constantly been responsive to our needs as a small grassroots organization. Beyond the deep Legal knowledge and care that UnLocal brings, they truly understand and support the vision for immigrants to be creators and thinkers and have collaborated with us in many creative projects throughout the years...We cannot emphasize enough how crucial this work is. We are thankful for the continuous work, vision and ways of being present in our community that UnLocal provides.
