SEARAC is a national civil rights organization that empowers Cambodian, Laotian, and Vietnamese American communities to create a socially just and equitable society. As representatives of the largest refugee community ever resettled in the United States, SEARAC stands together with other refugee communities, communities of color, and social justice movements in pursuit of social equity.
This advocacy data collection form seeks to compile information of families and community members impacted by detention and deportation. Stories collected will inform and support SEARAC's long-term advocacy efforts to change unjust immigration and detention laws. While we have limited capacity to coordinate individual case advocacy, we encourage impacted community members and their families to consider advocacy to fight their case. SEARAC is available to provide resources to support with community organizing and mobilization, communications/media outreach, and congressional advocacy guidance.
After filling out this form, someone from the SEARAC team will follow up with a phone call to answer additional questions you may have.
NOTE: SEARAC is not a legal service provider and we are unable to give legal guidance on your case. We encourage individuals to seek legal assistance in order to strengthen advocacy around your case.
