Northwest Immigrant Rights Project (NWIRP) is a 36-year-old organization operating out of four offices across Washington state - Seattle, Tacoma, Wenatchee, and Granger. in 2019 our clients hailed from 164 countries and spoke 70 different languages. At NWIRP our mission is to promote justice by defending and advancing the rights of immigrants through direct legal services, systemic advocacy, and community education. We believe access to justice shouldn't depend on where you are born or how much money you have. With support from our community, we work to keep families together, protect people from violence, and stand up to injustice.
