Detention Hotline

The CAIR Coalition hotline is a dedicated phone system through which adult immigrants held by the government can call our office for free.  The hotline is often the only way people in detention can reach their lawyers.


  • When: 2-hour shifts, 9am – 5pm, Monday to Friday
  • Where: CAIR Coalition office, 1612 K Street, Washington, D.C., 20006
  • You will be trained during your first shift

What makes a good hotline volunteer:

  • Volunteers who can commit to multiple shifts
  • Spanish proficiency is highly desired (other languages are also helpful)
