Pueblo Unido PDX
Pueblo Unido creates hope for and amplifies the voices of communities with vulnerable immigration status by connecting them to legal, social, and Indigenous language interpretation services. We envision a world in which all people live in freedom, and where they and their communities can be safe, feel supported and thrive.
Bottom Line for Portland
Since our formation in April 2017, WE--our donors, volunteers, clients, staff, and partners--have collaborated to…
- Facilitate over 500 free legal consultations
- Connect over 1,200 individuals to legal representation
- Deliver Indigenous language interpretation services during over 400 appointments in legal, health, and community settings.
- Submit 16,000 applications to pandemic-assistance programs
This work protects due process rights, promotes household stability, and secures language justice, and it could not be possible without your support.
- Your contributions are crucial to keeping families together, protecting immigrant rights, and restoring human dignity.

Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion
Pueblo Unido's programs are focused on addressing long-standing inequities and promoting social inclusion by helping people with vulnerable immigration status overcome financial, technological, literacy, linguistic, and bureaucratic barriers to essential human rights and services. Our board members and staff are predominantly Latinx or Indigenous and hold a variety of immigration experiences, ethnicities, and sexual identities, as well as Brazilian, Guatemalan, Honduran, Mexican, and Panamanian nationalities. We contract and support interpreters and navigators from Indigenous communities in Guatemala and Mexico.
