The Children’s Immigration Law Academy (CILA) is a project of the American Bar Association’s (ABA) Commission on Immigration. CILA was founded in 2015, and we are currently celebrating 8 amazing years of commitment to our mission of empowering all advocates who guide children and youth through complex legal procedures, to do so with courage, competency, compassion, and creativity. We are so thankful to get to do the meaningful and critical work that we do!
October 26 marks ABA Giving Day 2023, a celebration that unites the ABA’s global community of members, volunteers, and donors to support programs that advance democracy, equity, and justice here and abroad. This fundraising event allows donors, volunteers, and the public to support ABA programs including CILA.
We believe in a world where everyone’s voice is heard, and justice prevails. On ABA Giving Day 2023, we invite you to support CILA and invest in us, to protect and expand CILA’s innovative one-to-many model that creates an exponential impact on legal services for migrant children throughout Texas and the United States.
If you would like to support CILA during a different time, donate here. Thank you for supporting us. Every gift helps!
