Mission Statement

Over 1000 Advocates volunteer lawyers, MHPPS specialists, and interpreters have served in field missions to help over 40,000 refugees. The heart of Advocates mission is to support people applying for protection to protect them from being returned to deadly threats in the countries they fled.
