Immigrant Justice

What we want for survivors of abuse and what we want for immigrants is the same. We are working for safe, happy, vibrant communities where people:

  • are empowered and know their rights;
  • have access to economic resources to take care of themselves and their families;
  • are treated with dignity and integrated as a vital part of the community.

We choose that for all of us.

We know that survivors who are immigrants and people of color are particularly vulnerable to economic instability, poverty, and a lack of viable legal remedies. These things make it more difficult to find safety and support or to leave an abusive partner. We envision a world where everyone has access to lives free of violence and oppression.

Our priorities reflect an intention to look at all issues through an immigrant and racial justice lens.
