Image of Rocky Mountain Immigrant Advocacy Network

RMIAN was founded as a nonprofit organization in 2000. Initially created in 1993 by a group of pro bono lawyers in Colorado inspired to provide free legal services to detainees men and immigrant women, RMIAN has become a known legal advocacy organization that serves two of the most vulnerable immigrant populations Colorado: Men and women in immigration detention, and immigrant children who have suffered abuse, neglect, or violence. RMIAN believes that all people regardless of their financial situation should be empowered to legal information and should be due process.

The Rocky Mountain Network Defense of Immigrants (RMIAN) works to ensure justice for men and women in detention of immigrants and immigrant children who have suffered abuse, neglect, or violence.

Mission:

RMIAN is a nonprofit organization that serves low-income men, women and children in immigration proceedings. RMIAN promotes awareness of legal rights, effective representation to ensure due process, works to improve prison conditions, and promotes a more humane immigration system, including alternatives to detention.

Values:

  • RMIAN believes that the immigrant justice means justice for all.
  • RMIAN respects the needs and celebrate the contributions of individuals and communities we serve.
  • RMIAN believes our customers are equal partners in access to justice.
  • RMIAN value respect for all human beings, without distinction of race, gender, ethnicity, sexual orientation or legal status.
  • RMIAN believes in valuing and respecting the contributions of our board, staff and volunteers.
  • RMIAN believes in a work environment that fosters personal and professional growth and strives for excellence.

Services provided:

Unlike the defendants in the criminal justice system, persons in immigration proceedings are not entitled to free legal representation. Even children are often forced to represent themselves. RMIAN believes that all people regardless of their financial situation, should have equal access to legal information and due process.

RMIAN works to ensure equal access to justice through the following programs:

  • Detention Program
  • Children's Program
  • Volunteer Lawyer Training Program
  • Promotion and Education
  • Social Service Pilot Project
  • Anti-Human Trafficking Project
