Introduction Coloradans For Immigrant Rights envisions communities that welcome all people, regardless of immigration status. Communities where all people…immigrants and host community members alike • Have the power to determine the conditions under which they live; • Are valued for who they are; • Take responsibility for each others’ growth; • Can live their lives creatively, inspired by their histories and identities. Across the country, immigrants are organizing to claim their dignity and have an impact on policies affecting them. However, public discourse is often heavily slanted against the idea that immigrants should have full human rights, a significant obstacle for immigrant organizing. The general public needs to have a better understanding of the immigrant challenges and contributions and be mobilized to support immigrant justice.
Interests Mission: (aka GOAL) Coloradans For Immigrant Rights’ primary goal is to create a welcoming climate for all people by building broad support for immigrant justice. We advocate for humane immigration policies and work to eliminate unjust immigration practices. We educate and organize citizens in support of human rights for all people in the belief that diverse voices grow and strengthen the movement for immigrant justice.
