In the past 25 years, NILC has earned a national reputation as a leading expert on the complex interplay between immigrants' legal status and their rights under U.S. laws. Our policy advocacy played a key role in the successful restoration of benefits to many of the immigrants who lost eligibility under the 1996 welfare and immigration laws; our work has been instrumental in securing significant federal agency rulings that have ameliorated some of the harshest effects of those laws. Over the years, NILC's advocacy and impact litigation have resulted in significant victories protecting immigrants' access to services and fair treatment by the courts and government agencies. Our trainings, publications, and technical assistance reach an unusually diverse constituency of legal aid attorneys, nonprofit community groups, government officials, unions, and pro bono attorneys nationwide. NILC's staff is based in our Los Angeles headquarters and offices in Washington, D.C. and Oakland; we also operate an office in Oakland.
