Take action: Enough anti-immigrant violence
Immigration should be a safe and empowering choice. Everyone should have the freedom to move and freedom to stay based on what is best for them to thrive. But from El Paso, TX, to towns across Mississippi, immigrant and Latino communities have been relentlessly attacked by Trump’s administration and right-wing assailants. Here’s how you can take action.
