Al Otro Lado

Al Otro Lado is a bi-national advocacy and legal aid organization serving migrants, refugees and deportees in the United States and Mexico. We leverage partnerships and volunteers to build a broad-based immigrant justice movement. Our multidisciplinary, client-centered, and trauma-informed approach mixes fierce legal advocacy with holistic support.

    Los Angeles Refugee Representation Project

    Al Otro Lado’s Los Angeles Refugee Representation Project connects recently liberated asylum seekers and longer-term immigrant residents to necessary resources and support. Our holistic model blends legal and case management services with direct humanitarian support because we recognize that we cannot expect clients to engage in their legal cases, attend medical appointments, or navigate benefits unless and until their basic needs (food, clothing, shelter) are met.
