Detention Hotline

The CAIR Coalition in-office detention hotline allows detained immigrants wishing to contact CAIR Coalition to call our staff for free. Volunteers are in charge of answering phones and helping detainees connect with their attorney free-of-charge using our conference system, conducting phone intakes, and providing information about upcoming jail visits, procedures, and follow-up messages. 


  • When: 2-hour shifts, 9am – 5pm, Monday to Friday
  • Where: CAIR Coalition office, 1612 K Street, Washington, D.C., 20006

What makes a good hotline volunteer:

  • Volunteers who can commit to multiple shifts.
  • Spanish proficiency is highly desired but not required.
