Wildfires are devastating communities across California, causing more than 300,000 people to evacuate their homes and threatening many more. The Camp Fire in Northern California -- one of three blazing across the state -- is the most destructive in state history. We want to ensure that, if you are in an affected community, you find access to shelter. And if you are looking to help with disaster relief efforts, you know the most effective ways to contribute.

To provide high quality legal representation for immigrants and to advocate for human rights.
Our priorities are on detained immigrant women and children, battered immigrant women, people fleeing persecution in their home countires and seeking asylum, and low-income workers.
Located in the border and gateway city of El Paso, Texas, Las Americas recognizes the importance of our countries history of providing safe haven for those fleeing unjust and oppressive situations.
By providing critical legal services to underserved immigrants in our community, Las Americas has become a place where people can come seeking hope, unencumbered, feel their own dignity, and are empowered by their struggles. Through our efforts, the community is made aware of the need to protect immigrants' rights, the value of immigrants in our community and the many gifts they bring to this nation. In turn, Las Americas' role as a community educator on issues affecting the people we serve can foster increased volunteerism and renewed community support across partisan lines.
