Support NNIRR’s work to uplift migrant voices!

Dear Friend,

As we bring 2020 to a close, we can now say that we look forward to 2021 with renewed optimism —hopeful for a recovery from the pandemic and momentum towards much-needed change. 

Thank you for standing with NNIRR!

Please consider a year-end gift to support our work ahead.

Your partnership and solidarity are needed more than ever as we seek vital immigration policy and practice changes under the new Administration.

Please read our year end letter and guiding principles for the path forward: Dream. Rise. Organize. While we are optimistic for promised relief for our communities, we remain steadfast in our demands for a recovery inclusive of migrant families and longer-term policy change that centers human rights in all reform efforts. Strengthening grassroots engagement and lifting community voices on needs and aspirations are key to bringing about true relief, progress and rights for all immigrants and refugees.

Before the end of the year, we celebrate International Migrants’ Day, December 18th. This year marks the 30th anniversary of the UN’s International Convention on the Protection of the Rights of All Migrant Workers and Members of Their Families (commonly referred to as the Migrant Workers Convention or Migrant Rights Convention). 

We are honoring this day by launching NNIRR’s Grassroots Voices on the Borderlands campaign to uplift the voices of the communities on the ground who are experiencing and responding to the impacts of militarization, enforcement, human rights abuses and the attacks on asylum laws. 

Please help NNIRR bring community voices into the forefront as we move towards instilling a human rights approach in immigration policy and border governance.

Please consider a contribution to NNIRR. We can’t do this without you!

P.S. Four years ago, many of you stepped forward with generous donations to help us fight the cruel and racist policies of the incoming Trump Administration. Please give what you can to help us end those policies and lift up the conditions and rights of immigrants and refugees in this new era.
