The Political Asylum/Immigration Representation Project (PAIR) is the premiere provider of pro bono immigration legal services to asylum-seekers and immigrants unjustly detained in Massachusetts. In FY 2013, PAIR coordinated pro bono attorney representation that exceeded $6.5 million, and overall PAIR has a 95% successful outcome in its asylum cases. PAIR provides hope and a new beginning to asylum-seekers, torture survivors and immigration detainees through your help.
PAIR has moved! Please note PAIR's new address is 98 North Washington Street, Suite 106, Boston, MA 02114. We're just a few streets away from our old location.
