Advocacy in the Time of the Coronavirus

Take action to support immigrants in your community and nationwide!

HIAS Pennsylvania can only serve refugees if they are allowed into the country. We can only help support immigrants with legal services if vulnerable immigrants are given protections from the government. You can advocate for just policies for refugees and immigrants by calling your representative, protesting, and more.

Call to Action

The Executive Office for Immigration Review (EOIR) is upping their fees, also known as “user charges”, for the filing of certain EOIR forms – some, like the RIGHT FOR IMMIGRANTS TO APPEAL their case, by nearly 800%!
