#DefundHate

Detention Watch Network launched this initiative to cut off the flow of money that allows the Department of Homeland Security to deport and detain our community members. Money is one of the only barriers to Trump’s DHS fully enacting its hate-fueled detention and deportation nightmare. Check out the campaign messaging and other tools and stay up-to-date on the current campaign.

No Muslim Ban Ever

Value our Families Campaign

The Value Our Families Campaign exists to protect, preserve, and strengthen the family immigration system and promote an immigration system that is informed by love, empathy and justice. We are a network of local and national community-based and advocacy organizations who reject attacks and proposed harmful changes to our current family-based immigration system.  We also will work together to build public support for an immigration system that protects and promotes family unity and contributes to the American social and economic fabric. For more information on the campaign and its programs: Value our Families

Support US Ratification of UN Migrant Workers Convention

Please join the NNIRR in seeking ratification of the UN Convention on the Protection of Rights for All Migrant workers and Members of Their Families, also known as the Migrant Workers Convention or “MWC”.

Sign the Call for Support! Over the coming months (and likely, years) we will be raising awareness among policy makers and the public to urge that the U.S. affirm its commitment to the human rights of immigrants by ratifying the Convention. Our education campaign will make the links between international protections enshrined in the MWC and other international agreements to our own fight for equality and justice for immigrants in this country. And, ratification by the U.S. would send a signal to the rest of world about this country’s support for human rights.

Go here for more information and links to the support pledge.

National Prison Divestment Campaign

The National Network has joined a national campaign targeting the private prison construction industry, which promotes and profits from the incarceration of immigrant men, women and children and others in the U.S. and worldwide. Enlace, in partnership with community groups and unions across the US, is calling on all public and private institutions to divest their holdings in Corrections Corporation of America (CCA) and GEO Group, America’s largest private prison corporations which have profited from billions in taxpayer money.

Drop the I-word!

The Applied Research Center and Colorlines.org have launched a public education campaign to eradicate the use of the word “illegals” from every-day use and public discourse. The i-word is a dehumanizing racial slur that opens the door to racial profiling and violence, and prevents a respectful and genuine debate on immigration. Join NNIRR and urge your co-workers, neighbors, friends, and allies to Drop the I-Word and affirm the dignity and humanity of all people! Take Action:
