Kids In Need of Defense KIND Headquarters 1201 L St. NW, Floor 2 Washington, DC 20005
A world in which children’s rights and well-being are protected as they migrate alone in search of safety.
KIND will achieve our vision by:
Ensuring that no child appears in immigration court without high quality legal representation;
Advancing laws, policies, and practices that ensure children’s protection and uphold their right to due process and fundamental fairness; and
Promoting in countries of origin, transit, and destination durable solutions to child migration that are grounded in the best interests of the child and ensure that no child is forced to involuntarily migrate.
We protect children alone
KIND staff and our pro bono attorney partners at law firms, corporations, and law schools nationwide represent unaccompanied immigrant and refugee children in their deportation proceedings. Together, we ensure that no child stands in court alone.
