Description

Freedom for Immigrants’ highly dedicated team works to end U.S. immigration detention by monitoring human rights abuses, elevating stories, building community-based alternatives to detention, and advocating for system change. The heart of our work is community-based volunteers who visit people in detention, building relationships that have the power to change lives and systems.

Currently, Freedom for Immigrants supports a network of approximately 2,000 volunteers visiting at 55 immigration detention facilities through Freedom for Immigrants-affiliated visitation programs. Freedom for Immigrants is an award-winning non-profit whose founders have been recognized for their vision and leadership by Ashoka, Echoing Green, the Rockwood Leadership Institute, and the James Irvine Leadership Awards.

We are looking for candidates who are driven, highly organized, and have a deep commitment to Freedom for Immigrant’s mission to abolish the U.S. immigration detention system. Applicants must be willing to work independently as well as in collaborative teams in a family-style office. We strongly encourage people who’ve been directly impacted by immigration detention and the mass incarceration system to apply.
