Who We Are

Our Goal

Our goal is to abolish ICE and create an immigration system divorced from white supremacy, and that respects the dignity of all human beings. We are doing this by mainstreaming the idea in political discourse, pushing current elected officials and candidates to adopt abolishing ICE as part of their platform, and partnering with organizations and individuals who are at the frontlines of immigration advocacy and supporting immigrant communities.
