Pueblo Unido’s mission is to empower and provide resources to Latinxs with vulnerable immigration status, and to advocate for solutions that build just communities. We envision a United States of America with libertad y justicia para todxs.
Bottom Line for Portland
In three and a half years, Pueblo Unido provided free legal consultations and communication credits to over 300 people in detention, paid toward 62 attorney retainer fees, and helped post seven bonds. This enabled 29 people to be released from detention, nine of whom have already won their cases against deportation and obtained lawful status.
“It’s a small, grassroots organization of really motivated and dedicated people, with a lot of direct action and direct results. So many other nonprofits get bogged down with bureaucracy, but Pueblo Unido actually can make a difference.” —Vianca Diaz Cea, co-founder of Power to the Dreamers
