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 2 ½ years, Pueblo Unido provided free legal consultations and communication credits to over 130 people in detention, paid towards 21 attorney retainers, and helped post 6 bonds. This enabled 15 people to be released from detention, 3 of whom won their cases against deportation and became lawful residents.
25 randomly-selected donors of $50+ win a Pueblo Unido tote and a volume of the Esto Es Para Ti zine series. Donors of $150+ get a chance to win a “Treat Yourself” gift package!
“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 and paralegal at Portland Immigration Law
