The Ukraine Immigration Task Force is a volunteer legal coalition that seeks to help Ukrainians fleeing war find refuge in the United States. Our members number over 100 attorneys and policy professionals who represent a broad spectrum of immigration and related practices, as well as nonprofit and advocacy organizations.

We assist Ukrainians with the U.S. immigration process by:

  • interacting with the Ukrainian and American communities to learn issues affecting Ukrainians seeking refuge in the United States
  • providing guidance and clarification on key immigration topics in multiple languages
  • informing the legal community, policymakers, and the general public about relevant legal developments affecting Ukrainians
  • partnering with national and local organizations to offer webinars, legal clinics, and pro bono assistance
  • communicating with agencies and elected officials to provide input and receive timely updates
  • advocating for regulatory and legislative improvements to the immigration process

Our advocacy initiatives have included:

  • expediting employment authorizations
  • expanding TPS eligibility dates and expediting applications
  • pushing for a Ukrainian Adjustment Act
  • ensuring safe and efficient entry for adults and minors
  • amending E-3 visas to include Ukraine
  • granting Ukraine Priority 2 designation under the U.S. Refugee Admissions Program
  • increasing funding for Lautenberg application processing
  • communicating consular challenges encountered by Ukrainians abroad
  • raising awareness about abuse and exploitation of newly arriving Ukrainians
  • educating the public about risks of victimization and human trafficking facing vulnerable Ukrainians, particularly women and children
