HIP represents clients seeking release from detention in Massachusetts, promotes policy reform, and provides representation to refugees and asylees who are seeking family reunification and legal residency.

Our program often partners with HIP to offer regular Know Your Rights presentations and advice and counsel legal clinics throughout the greater Boston community.
