Volunteer Advocates for Immigrant Justice

VAIJ works with NWIRP on immigration detention cases. NWIRP provides initial case screenings to detainees at the Tacoma immigration detention center. Following these screenings, NWIRP refers potential cases to VAIJ for a secondary intake process during which VAIJ staff determines whether the case can be placed with a pro bono attorney. People wanting to be placed with an attorney can call and leave a message with their case information. Supported by the law firms of Davis Wright Tremaine; K&L Gates & Ellis; Riddell Williams; Heller Ehrman White & McAuliffe; and Perkins Coie.
