Responding and Resisting Against Trump’s Largest ICE RaidAdvancement Project stands with Morristown and against the Trump administration’s racial purge
Advancement Project responded to Trump’s largest ICE raid, which took place in ground in Morristown, Tennessee, by sending our civil rights first-responders: Communicators, community lawyers, and rapid-response organizers. Since then, we are in solidarity with our immigrant brothers and sisters in Tennessee. Throughout the state, across the South, and everywhere in the country, the resistance is saying no to the Trump administration’s policies of hatred. We are fighting against a racial purge and for the ability of communities of color to thrive.
As part of our work, we worked with families in Morristown and with the Tennessee Immigrant and Refugee Rights Coalition to get the word out on what we saw in Morristown. Browse through these to learn more:
