The San Francisco Immigrant Legal & Education Network (SFILEN) is a unique and groundbreaking collaboration of thirteen organizations, including some of the region’s pioneering immigrant service providers and some of the city’s leading legal advocacy organizations – each with decades of experience providing free and low cost immigration legal services and community education to low income immigrants in San Francisco. We represent immigrants from African, Arab, Asian, and Latino communities. As you know, immigrants make up almost 40% of San Francisco’s population, yet many are faced with the challenges of isolation and limited access to services. Since the Network’s inception in December 2006, we have worked to reduce these challenges by providing thousands of low-income San Francisco residents with free immigration legal assistance, as well as community education.
Every year, SFILEN holds Immigrant Family Day, a day of civic engagement where we gather clients, members, and families from each district who have received our services at City Hall to ask the Board of Supervisors and the Mayor’s office to continue supporting San Francisco’s immigrant families. Each Immigrant Family Day has been an enriching experience not only for the families we represent, who feel valued as residents of San Francisco, but also for city leaders who hear their stories.
This is such an important year to come out and support the immigrant community at our event on Wednesday, April 26 from 9:30-2pm
