Legal and Support Services

Make the Road New Jersey’s vibrant community center in downtown Elizabeth and a satellite clinic in Passaic offer services to thousands of low-income immigrant families each year: 

  • Legal Services: MRNJ’s four-person legal team offers high quality pro-bono legal representation in immigration law and employment law. MRNJ has successfully reunited dozens of families through immigration petitions, filed U and T visa applications for immigrant victims of crime and survivors of human trafficking, helped hundreds of immigrants naturalize, and renewed more than hundreds of DACA cases as the program was under threat. 
  • Beginner and Intermediate ESOL: Each week, MRNJ hosts three comprehensive ESOL classes taught by experienced teachers, helping community members build organizing and communication skills. 
  • OSHA: MRNJ provides OSHA (Occupational Safety and Health Administration) 10 and 30 hour training workshops throughout the year to ensure safe and healthful working conditions for more than dozens of workers.
