Northwest Immigrant Rights Project promotes justice for low-income immigrants by pursuing and defending their legal status. We focus on providing direct legal services, supported by our education and public policy work.


Through its legal services, NWIRP helps:

  • Uphold Basic Human Rights
  • Preserve Family Unity
  • Prevent Persecution
  • Protect Children
  • Provide Hope for Justice

Founded in 1984, NWIRP's roots were in addressing the legal needs of Central American refugees and others who were able to legalize their status under Amnesty programs. NWIRP has grown significantly in scope and currently serves low-income immigrants and refugees from more than 100 countries across Latin America, Asia, the Middle East, Eastern and Western Europe and Africa.
