Local Charity Donates to Group Helping Low-Income Immigrants


The Northwest Immigrant Rights Project (NWIRP) has been awarded a grant of $15,000 by the Yakima Valley Community Foundation to do community outreach and education throughout the Yakima Valley regarding immigration issues.

According to Jorge L. BarĂ³n, Executive Director of Northwest Immigrant Rights Project, the grant will focus on options available to community members under current immigration law as well as potential changes to immigration law with the pending immigration reform legislation.

Directing Attorney in NWIRP’s Granger office Mirta Laura Contreras said that the grant from Yakima Valley Community Foundation will “enable us to meet directly with community members. It will give us more flexibility to give presentations and participate in events throughout the region.”

Northwest Immigrant Rights Project was founded in 1984 and is the only organization providing comprehensive immigration legal services to low-income immigrants in Washington State. The Granger office has been serving the Yakima Valley for almost 30 years. To learn more about Northwest Immigrant Rights Project, visit
