The goal of Advancement Project’s Immigrant Justice Project is to stop the passage and implementation of immigration laws that target and threaten vulnerable children and families.
Through multiple initiatives, the Immigrant Justice Project defends the rights and privileges of all immigrants, particularly those who do not always have a voice.
- Advancement Project believes that its model of strengthening local and community-based efforts is critical to building a movement and replicating successes.
- Our Immigrant Justice Project conducts legal and policy research to inform the strategy of local groups, files litigation where necessary, helps build bridges between African-American and Latino communities, and provides communications support to change the public discourse around immigration.
- The struggle for immigrants' rights should not – and cannot – be separate from the broader struggle for social justice. In fact, the injustice that immigrants face is a warning sign of much larger racial, social and economic problems that threaten all of us.
