The Political Asylum Immigration Representation (PAIR) Project is the premier provider of pro bono immigration services to asylum- seekers and immigrants unjustly detained in Massachusetts. We work to match indigent clients with volunteer attorneys, and offer training, close mentoring, and strategic back-up throughout the immigration process. Last year, PAIR helped over 1,400 clients. With the help of dedicated volunteers and generous supporters, PAIR brings hope and a new beginning to asylum-seekers, torture survivors and immigration detainees.
“Once more, I have the opportunity to get up and smile at life, thanks to the people at PAIR. None of this would have been possible if you had not given me a hand when I felt I was drowning. Because of you, I have been freed from many problems; uncertainty no longer seizes my thoughts. You gave me every support I needed and you did so unconditionally and with great warmth.”-PAIR asylum client
