CAIR Coalition Jail Visit Volunteers
Thank you for your interest in volunteering on a CAIR Coalition jail visit!
CAIR Coalition regularly visits immigration detention facilities across Virginia and Maryland to provide adult detainees with general information about the detention process, their legal rights, and options for fighting deportation. Volunteers are responsible for conducting legal intakes for new detainees, as well as delivering follow-up messages and documents, and other tasks as needed.
Visits take place on various Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Thursdays, and Fridays each month, and are full-day commitments. Spanish-speakers are highly desired, but a certain number of slots are available for non-Spanish-speakers as well. No legal experience is required.
All volunteers are required to attend a training before visiting a detention center with CAIR Coalition. These trainings are often held on the third floor of CAIR Coalition's DC office. Please, however, look closely at the address for the training you sign up for, as CAIR Coalition holds some trainings in collaboration with law schools and other community partners in DC and Virginia. This signup sheet is updated as new trainings are added, so please check back soon if you are not available during the sessions scheduled below.
If you need to cancel your training signup, please navigate to your signup slot, then choose the third cancellation option, which will let you send a link to yourself. That link will allow you to cancel.
