Hi everyone!

Services, Immigrant Rights, and Education Network (SIREN) in San Jose is hiring a Senior Staff Attorney to help build their new Deportation Defense project. They’re looking for someone who has at least three years of deportation defense experience and is fluent in either Spanish or Vietnamese.

Must be an entrepreneurial badass ready to fight ICE both in the courts and through movement-building! Must believe in and understand the power of organizing. I’m helping find the perfect candidate, so feel free to email me directly at olga.tomchin@gmail.com if you have any questions.

Trying to hire quickly for this and a number of other positions (legal and non-legal) that I will be sharing soon. Apply ASAP!!

Overview of SIREN (Services, Immigrant Rights & Education Network)

“We empower low-income immigrants and refugees in Silicon Valley by combining community organizing, policy advocacy, and legal services – i.e. we invite legal services clients to join (and eventually lead) our organizing and advocacy efforts. Our community organizing program is driven by a belief that immigrants – both adults and youth – are agents of change and develops their leadership skills to address issues such as health, public benefits, and immigration. We have been a strategy council member of Mobilize the Immigrant Vote Campaign since its inception. Our policy advocacy program counts on the input of emerging leaders from our community organizing program and legal services clients to move forward policy solutions that best address their concerns – a people’s agenda. We challenge the constant state budget cuts that directly impact immigrant communities such as attacks on Medi-Cal, CalWORKs, and Food Stamps. We are a steering committee member of California Immigrant Policy Center and of the California Partnership. Our BIA accredited legal services program assists over 20,000 community members annually with services such as citizenship applications, DACA, and family immigration petitions. We are proud to be one of the leading citizenship application assistance providers in California. Due to overwhelming need in this historical moment, we are hiring a Senior Staff Attorney to build a new deportation defense practice area.”
