20 Years Fighting to Advance Equal Justice for All Immigrants

 

October 29, 2019

6:30 PM - 9:30 PM

 

The Mayflower Hotel, Washington, DC

 

 

This year marks the 20th anniversary of the Capital Area Immigrants’ Rights (CAIR) Coalition’s work with our partners to protect the rights, the lives, and the families of immigrants in the Capital region and beyond. Our annual 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.
