Immigrant Dignity Coalition

En Español

The Immigrant Dignity Coalition is a coalition of local labor, education, civil rights and faith communities in the greater Cincinnati area who favor the dignity and basic human rights of all people.

About the Immigrant Dignity Coalition:

The Immigrant Dignity Coalition has 32 diverse organizational members who stand united in opposition to unjust deportations and to anti-immigrant harassment of all kinds. The Coalition is building local power, forging a community that will last. In the face of the fear, racism, and confusion emanating from our nation’s capital the Coalition says: stand united, stay calm, get informed, and get active.

What We Do:

The Coalition advocates for policies and practices that create effective, loving, pro-immigrant communities that prevent unjust deportations and unnecessary harassment of immigrants.

The Coalition provides Know Your Rights trainings and toolkits. We conduct train-the-trainer workshops so that Coalition members are equipped to lead in their own communities.

The Coalition provides an “Immigrant Dignity Report” – a regular email dispatch collecting news, events, and calls to action related to opposing unjust deportations, school bullying, DACA, and fighting anti-immigrant harassment at the local level.
