The New York State Liberty Defense Project (LDP) was launched by Governor Cuomo in 2017 to ensure that immigrant New Yorkers can access the full protections they are afforded under the law. To create the capacity to provide a regional rapid response to address the urgent legal need of any immigrant, as well as provide support to families of those affected, the New York State Office for New Americans (ONA) will expand the availability of immigration attorneys in all regions of the state to offer free and expert assistance and direct representation under the LDP.

Reporting to the Supervising Attorney, the LDP immigration attorney will assist in carrying out LDP grant objectives and will work to advance the mission of Journey’s End Refugee Services. The LDP immigration attorney will provide outreach, direct immigration legal services, Know Your Rights trainings, and case management services to the immigrant population of Western New York. This position will primarily operate out of Buffalo, NY.
