ABOUT THE EVENT

Capital Area Immigrants' Rights (CAIR) Coalition works with our partners to protect the rights, the lives, and the families of immigrants in the Capital region and beyond. Our annual signature event brings together several hundred supporters from across DC, Maryland, and Virginia committed to providing justice for immigrant men, women, and children threatened with detention and deportation. The evening provides us with an opportunity to honor our champions, including our pro bono advocates, leaders on Capitol Hill, and committed law firms that provide millions of dollars in pro bono legal services on an annual basis.
