This year, we are celebrating an amazing first year of full implementation of the Immigration Justice Campaign by awarding our Stephen K. Fischel Distinguished Public Service Award to some our partners who have made this work possible:

  • Ava Benach for her excellence and commitment to the Immigration Justice Campaign’s mentorship program.

  • The pro bono team and volunteer attorneys at Morgan Lewis for their exceptional work on behalf of detained immigrants.   

For more than 15 years, the American Immigration Council has bestowed its Public Service Award to outstanding individuals or organizations who exhibit a commitment and dedication to our heritage as a nation of immigrants and to the struggle for fair and humane immigration policies in the United States.

Since 2008, this Distinguished Public Service Award has borne the name of the late Stephen K. Fischel. A man of incredible spirit and commitment to justice, Mr. Fischel spent more than 30 years at the U.S. Department of State working to shape laws and policies that would live up to our highest ideals as a nation of immigrants. He displayed in these efforts, as everywhere in his public service and professional life, legal skill and knowledge, common sense, integrity, and abiding courage. The American Immigration Council was proud to honor Mr. Fischel in 2006 with a Distinguished Public Service Award for his leadership and service and is very proud to have the award carry his name.
