We partner with immigrants and their advocates to identify current challenges and design scalable digital tools that simplify the immigration process while upholding the human right to dignity, privacy, and safety. Our aim is not only to simplify, but to positively transform the immigrant experience through equitable access to technology and legal aid.
Founded in New York City, Pro Bono Net was created by two law firm pro bono leaders who recognized the potential of technology and collaboration as a force multipliers for good. Pro Bono Net’s platforms have been adopted by civil justice partners in more than 40 states and territories and helped millions of people across the US.Learn more about Probono
In 2007, Pro Bono Net joined forces with national immigrants' rights groups to create the Immigration Advocates Network (or IAN). From its roots as a single destination for advocates supporting immigrants, IAN quickly grew to develop new digital tools and initiatives to help immigrants find low-cost legal assistance, know their eligibility for immigration relief, and apply for naturalization.
As we look ahead to the future, the Immigrant Advocates Network has broadened its scope and changed its name to Justicia Lab, Pro Bono Net’s incubator of immigrant justice tech.
Justicia Lab’s goal is to rebalance the scales and give immigrants and their advocates new tools to navigate our immigration system, find workplace justice, and more.
Our team of designers, strategists, and attorneys work hand in hand with immigrants and their advocates to co-design solutions and bring resources to where they’re needed the most. We bring diverse perspectives to every challenge and decades of experience supporting immigrants and refugees.
