Freedom for Immigrants
We are devoted to abolishing immigration detention, while ending the isolation of people currently suffering in this system.
Freedom for Immigrants is a national nonprofit devoted to abolishing immigration detention through two main strategies, while ending the isolation of people currently suffering in this profit¬-driven system. First, we mobilize a network of 4,500 watchdog community members that uncovers and tracks abuses experienced by those in immigration detention, shedding light in a consistent manner for the first time on this hidden system. Second, we are modeling a community-based alternative to detention that welcomes immigrants into the social fabric of the United States. Through these windows into the system, we gather data and stories to combat injustice at the individual level and push systemic change.
