About Us

Immigrant Legal Resource Center
Teaching, Interpreting, and Changing Law Since 1979

The Immigrant Legal Resource Center (ILRC) uses policy advocacy, capacity building, and civic engagement strategies to help immigrant families be together and thrive. Through our efforts, immigrants can more easily obtain green cards, United States citizenship, permission to stay and work in the United States, and protection from deportation. As a national nonprofit resource center, we provide immigration legal trainings, technical assistance, and legal educational materials, as well as engage in advocacy and immigrant civic participation, outreach, and education to advance immigrant rights. The ILRC is headquartered in San Francisco and has offices in California’s Central Valley, San Antonio & Austin, Texas, and Washington DC.

Our Mission

The ILRC was founded in 1979 by Professor Bill Ong Hing who recognized an unfulfilled need for legal services to represent immigrant clients and to supply legal advice to community-based and legal services organizations. Since then, the mission of the ILRC has been to work with and educate immigrants, community organizations, and the legal sector to continue to build a democratic society that values diversity and the rights of all people.
