Our mission is to reunite and defend the rights of families separated by inhumane immigration policies.
Project Corazon, run by the Lawyers for Good Government Foundation in partnership with nearly 40 top law firms, was created to help reunite families separated by the administration's inhumane "zero-tolerance" policy. Since the launch of Project Corazon, we have expanded our mission, mobilizing thousands of lawyers to defend the rights of immigrants and their families.
NEARLY 3,000 children WERE taken from their parents by the united states government Between april AND june 2018.
Between April and June 2018, nearly 3,000 children were taken from their parents by the United States government and placed in detention centers, shelters, and foster homes across the country. Most of the affected parents had no idea where their children were or how to find them.
According to the American Academy of Pediatrics, separating children from their primary caregivers can cause irreparable harm to lifelong development. Foster families on the front lines report caring for children who cry constantly or are too terrified to sleep.
We're fighting to reunite and defend the rights of immigrant families.
Working with a network of immigration legal services providers, volunteer lawyers, bilingual interpreters, and law firms across the country, Project Corazon is fighting to reunite separated families, defend the rights of detained immigrants, and provide assistance to immigrants recently released from detention.
