There are four ways for you to join us to pursue justice and welcome immigrants through free, high-quality legal services.
- Assist at one of the NIJFON clinics by welcoming clients over a cup of coffee, providing childcare or participating in our intake process to ensure clients are organized before meeting with an attorney. Because we serve clients from around the world, NIJFON also seeks volunteers to serve as interpreters at each of the clinics. Please note that all clinic volunteers must be at least 18 years old and be comfortable and capable of maintaining confidentiality for the benefit of our clients. Apply to volunteer here.
- Give to NIJFON to ensure that we are able to continue to provide high-quality legal services at no cost to our clients. You can support us by sending a check payable to NIJFON to P.O. Box 68892, Schaumburg, IL 60168 or online at nijfon.org/donate. Additionally, if your local United Methodist church participates in the Rainbow Covenant, consider using the Rainbow Covenant number 50000140.
- Advocate for an immigration system that is both accessible and easier to navigate for all immigrants regardless of their ability to pay for a lawyer. We invite you to join us in contacting members of Congress as well as state and local legislators about the need for comprehensive immigration reform that increases fairness and equity, and keeps families together.

- Educate your community about the immigration system and challenges for immigrants in our country. We can provide you with the tools to speak within your own community. NIJFON staff and board members are also available to speak as a part of your Sunday School class, small group, justice ministry meeting or as a part of another event you may be planning.
