Who we are

Who We Are

The CCBLC is a network of Canadian lawyers working to help those impacted by the US President’s discriminatory travel ban, in partnership with colleagues in the US and around the world. On January 27, 2017, the US President signed an Executive Order banning entry to the US by individuals from seven Muslim-majority countries, as well as all refugees. This travel ban and its ensuing trip through the courts has caused large-scale rights violations and senseless family separation, and left thousands of refugees stranded in desperate circumstances.

The Canadian Cross-Border Legal Coalition grew out of the spontaneous mobilization of hundreds of lawyers who rushed to airports in the US and Canada to help those impacted by this discriminatory Executive Order. It brings together leading Canadian organizations and groups of volunteer lawyers and law students who quickly came together to oppose the ban and fight for the rights of those impacted.

 

Coalition partners include:

●      The Refugee Hub

●      Canadian Association of Refugee Lawyers

●      Canadian Civil Liberties Association

●      British Columbia Civil Liberties Association

●      Dedicated groups of lawyers and law students who have self-organized across Canada

●      Leaders in the Canadian legal community
