Rapid Response Team

Volunteer as part of Bet Tzedek’s Rapid Response Team

The Red Cross estimates that there are approximately 250,000 U.S. citizen children of undocumented parents living in Los Angeles County. Bet Tzedek is committed to helping families prepare for the aftermath of a child having one or both of his/her parents removed from the United States. We are actively working to schedule Know Your Rights presentations and clinics to help families understand their parental rights and prepare for the possibility of having a loved one, family friend, or neighbor care for their child in their absence. Our office will also provide free representation to those individuals who have assumed care of these children.

We cannot do this alone. We need attorneys and translators. We are seeking the assistance of volunteers who, after being trained by Bet Tzedek attorneys, are willing to sit down with families to provide brief advice and counsel and help draft documents designed to help ensure the parents’ care wishes are respected by a court. Our hope is that by engaging in this work, these children will land in safe and stable homes.
