The JIF project is going to help the immigrants who are facing the risk of being deported and give them the training they need for future endeavors in the legal system. They will also help them to obtain the attorney they need through the use of pro-bono cases.
The project will help those to understand and know their rights as well as providing group workshops and access to all of the self-help manuals they need to get the results they want.
It also helps to find other programs that will provide the empowerment and support the immigrants need to get out of situations that could cause their deportment.

They are also actively involved with the criminal justice reformation.
