Kids in Need of Defense Expand KIND staff and their pro bono attorney partners at law firms, corporations, and law schools in the US represent unaccompanied migrant and refugee children in their deportation proceedings. Together, they ensure that no child stands in court alone. KIND has trained a robust national network of pro bono attorneys who represent unaccompanied children in their search for safety. This includes children who have been persecuted in their home countries, trafficked to the US, abused, abandoned or neglected.
