Protect Justice for All

Commission on Immigration

Children traveling alone are being turned away at our border. Immigrants in overcrowded detention centers lack the basics needed for health and hygiene – including soap and water. Many literally fear for their lives as COVID-19 spreads in ICE facilities. The ABA Commission on Immigration provides legal assistance to immigrants and refugees seeking protection and advocates for their safety and rights under the law.

Support Marginalized Communities

Commission on Homelessness & Poverty

The Commission is a critical resource for attorneys seeking to protect the legal rights of nearly 570,000 individuals who frequently lack stable and secure housing. The economic downturn spurred by COVID-19 exacerbates this situation by forcing marginally employed renters from their homes and into dangerous living situations -- over-crowded shelters or the streets. Many face unique legal challenges as they seek refuge in recently closed public spaces.

In the last month, the Commission has trained over 1,000 lawyers on protection orders, virtual litigation and gun violence issues.
