On September 5, 2017, the Department of Homeland Security announced the rescission of DACA (Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals), putting more than 800,000 "Dreamers" at risk of deportation. In response, the L4GG Foundation began recruiting volunteer lawyers all over the country to help.


    In a matter of days, more than 5,250 lawyers volunteered to help.


    Now we're working to match these volunteers with DACA renewal clinics all over the country. If your organization is planning a clinic and needs volunteer lawyers, or if you're a lawyer looking for ways to help, please read through the information on this page and then get in touch with us.

    DACA Clinic Organizers:

    Connect with volunteer lawyers

    The L4GG Foundation has signed up more than 5,250 volunteer lawyers who want to help staff DACA clinics. For more information about how we can help you connect with volunteer lawyers, click the blue button below.

  • Looking for another way to help?

    We're mobilizing thousands of volunteer lawyers to help Dreamers. To help us continue this program (and others like it), please consider making a donation to the L4GG Foundation.  

  • DACA Clinic Organizers

    Connect with more than 5,250 volunteer lawyers to staff your clinic.

    Add your clinic to our volunteer opportunity database.

    Our online system makes it easy for volunteer lawyers to find you.

    We've put together detailed instructions to help you add your clinic to our volunteer opportunity database, which volunteer lawyers will be able to search by zip code (and view on a map). Once you've added your clinic, you can (but don't have to) use our tool to track RSVPs from potential volunteers, gather information from volunteers, and/or send email updates to volunteers. We have a team of 50+ volunteers working now to add clinics and plan to launch it by Friday, 9/15/17.

    Step-by-step instructions available here.

    Add your clinic using these instructions, or contact us for help (see below).

    If you'd like to add your clinic information, click here for instructions. But you don't have to do it yourself; we have a team of 50+ Immigration Volunteer Coordinators who have been trained to use our system and look forward to helping (see below).

    If you don't have time to DIY, we can help.

    We know you're busy. We can help.

    It takes about 10 minutes to add your clinic details into our database - but we know how busy things are right now (and we know not everyone is technically inclined). If you'd like to connect with our volunteer lawyers but don't have time to enter your clinic details yourself, please email us at support@l4gg.org so we can assign one of our Immigration Volunteer Coordinators to help you.

    Become an L4GG Sustaining Member.

    With your support, we can continue to mobilize thousands of lawyer volunteers across the country.

    As a young organization (founded in the wake of the 2016 presidential election), we are resource-constrained and supported almost exclusively by our volunteers. Sustaining Members make it possible for us to continue organizing and mobilizing thousands of lawyers in defense of individuals and communities at risk.
