Friday, May 26, 2017 12:35 PM


In response to the recent Executive Orders on immigration and enforcement actions by the Trump administration that has put millions of individuals at risk of deportation and spread fear in our communities, the Immigration Advocates Network (IAN), Catholic Legal Immigration Network, Inc. (CLINIC), American Immigration Lawyers Association (AILA), National Council of La Raza (NCLR), Pro Bono Net, and The Advocates for Human Rights have collaborated to launch #StandWithImmigrants - a large-scale mobilization effort to activate layers and other professionals to protect and promote the rights of immigrants.

Millions of people who live, work, and pray in our communities are at risk of deportation and abuse. The #StandWithImmigrants campaign will empower everyday Americans to use their skills and expertise to protect immigrants and to signal that they will not stand by as our neighbors are harassed, families torn apart, and our government ignores baasic human rights and due process. The campaign will:

  • Introduce new supporters to the immigration landscape;
  • Provide access to a broad array of volunteer opportunities;
  • Connect supporters to local, state, and national advocacy opportunities; and
  • Offer guidance on how to engage government and business leaders to promote pro-immigrant and inclusive laws and policies.

The #StandWithImmigrants campaign seeks to empower legal advocates and other immigrant allies across the United States to protect our friends and neighbors from deportation and ensure fair treatment and due process,
