Communications Associate – Immigrant Law Center of Minnesota

Communications Associate – Immigrant Law Center of Minnesota
Communications Associate – Immigrant Law Center of Minnesota
History: ILCM was founded in 1976 as Oficina Legal, a program of Southern Minnesota Regional Legal Services. Oficina Legal established itself as a separate 501(c)(3) nonprofit in 1996, after the Illegal Immigration Reform and Immigrant Responsibility Act imposed new restrictions on federally-funded legal services programs. By forming a separate 501(c)(3), ILCM could continue to meet the immigration legal needs of all immigrants, regardless of the type of service required, or the client’s legal status. The agency was later renamed Immigrant Law Center of Minnesota to reflect the increasing diversity of the refugee and immigrant groups it served, especially those of Asian and African descent. Over the last two decades, ILCM has established itself as Minnesota’s premier provider of comprehensive immigration legal services to low-income clients of all nationalities. ILCM also employs its expertise to inform state policymakers on how to improve immigration laws and systems, working to ensure that the Minnesota immigration system is based on fairness, dignity, and long-term solutions.

Mission and Goals: The mission of ILCM is to enhance opportunities for immigrants and refugees through legal representation for low-income individuals, and through education and advocacy with diverse communities. ILCM’s goals in support of its mission are:
1) To remedy legal problems by providing quality immigration legal services to low-income immigrants and refugees of all nationalities;
2) To prevent legal problems by providing law-related education to immigrants and refugees of all nationalities; and
3) To raise public awareness of immigration issues so as to encourage public policy that is both compassionate and practical, and protects the universal human rights of immigrants and refugees.
