Immigrant Justice

The struggle for immigrant justice is part of the broader struggle for racial justice. US immigration policy has historically been rooted in racism with entry restrictions and exploitation based on race. In deep partnership with grassroots groups across the country, Advancement Project’s Immigrant Justice Project seeks to end the unnecessary criminalization of immigrants. Our team provides support through a combination of policy, advocacy, organizing, communications and litigation to dismantle systems that oppress immigrants and communities of color. We help build bridges between immigrant communities and other communities of color, and seek to change the public discourse that dehumanizes and demonizes immigrants.
Replacing Criminalization and Disenfranchisement with Citizenship and Voting Rights

Dissent is seen as a threat and we are getting into very dark times where hate is normalized and fascism is endorsed. This latest threat out of the White House is very dangerous and rooted in xenophobia and eugenics. At a time where the nation is reeling from a week of loss and hate crimes, when the world is experiencing the highest level of displaced people, Trump lashes out with intimidation. This is the erosion of the Voting Rights Act, the Civil Rights Act and takes us centuries back to the shameful beginnings of America.
