Be a Phone Volunteer on Immigrant Detention Line

phone
CAIR Coalition is in need of volunteers to help answer our detention line. The detention line is for detained noncitizens and their family members who can call us for free. Detention line volunteers help with initial intakes, provide additional information to the detainee and/or their family member about the detention and removal process, as well as connect detainees to their attorneys. Detention line volunteers may also assist with preparations for our weekly jail visits, research criminal records and help with case follow-up and translations. Training is required.
CAIR Coalition is particularly looking for volunteers who speak Spanish, French or Arabic. Volunteers must be available for at least one two-hour afternoon shift a week between the hours of 11am-1pm OR 1 p.m. and 3 p.m., Monday-Friday. (Ideally, we are looking for volunteers who could do more than one shift a week.)
