Everyday immigrants suffer human rights abuses due to federal and local immigration enforcement. Making those stories heard is the first step toward change.
Through recording, monitoring, and disseminating stories, we demonstrate the injustice of current policies. The HURRICANE initiative allows communities to analyze the challenges they face, develop a stronger shared analysis, and determine their own demands for just policy change.
Come learn how to document abuses in your community.
