The Immigration Advocates Network is launched

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.
