The Immigration Advocates Network (IAN) and the National Council of La Raza (NCLR), in partnership with Pro Bono Net and Verizon, are pleased to announce the launch of Immigo, a new mobile app designed to provide the most up-to-date information about changing immigration laws and policies. Launched at the 2014 NCLR Annual Conference and National Latino Family Expo in Los Angeles, this cutting-edge, comprehensive resource for anyone who works with immigrant communities is currently available for free for Apple devices and for Android smart phones and tablets.
"Day in and day out, our Affiliates and allies are working with individuals and families who have questions about immigration policy and reform. This is an easily accessible resource that provides access to the latest information, updates and resources for those assisting immigrants in this country," said Janet Murguia, President and CEO, NCLR. "Immigo will be a valuable tool not only for our NCLR Affiliates, but for all organizations working within the immigrant integration arena."
Immigo provides users with information about state and federal regulations and resources associated with immigration, as well as changes and updates to immigration law and policy. Additional features include a daily immigration news feed, national trainings calendar, and geolocation technology that allows users to find nearby, trusted providers of free or low-cost immigration legal services. "Immigo is the first-ever mobile app designed to connect individuals working with immigrants to comprehensive trainings, resources and legal referrals," said Matthew Burnett, Director of the Immigration Advocates Network (IAN). "As the largest network of nonprofit and pro bono immigration advocates in the country, IAN is proud to partner with NCLR, Verizon and Pro Bono Net to ensure that advocates anywhere in the country have ready access to timely, relevant information about this complex and ever-changing area of law."
