The Right to Immigration Institute

The right to immigration institute works in immigrant and allied communities to help them realize power in legal and nonlegal ways by changing relationships in order to foster social change.

Presence in: United States
Focus: Community Organizing, Refugees & Migrant Rights

The right to immigration institute works in immigrant and allied communities to help them realize power in legal and nonlegal ways by changing relationships in order to foster social change. We figure forced migrants will not only provide more advocates, but  more effective, more culturally aware, language proficient and trusted advocates, and their advocacy more favorably bends the legal fabric toward the justice sought in the community at the same time as community based legally aware advocates can diffuse the ambient carceral rumor mill in immigrant communities.
