The Immigrant Dignity Coalition’s purpose is to inform, connect, and mobilize the Southwest Ohio / Northern Kentucky community to defend and protect the dignity of the immigrant and refugee community by working in partnership and as allies.
About the Immigrant Dignity Coalition:
The Immigrant Dignity Coalition has 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 will work for policies that support and promote:
- Fundamental human rights and human dignity for all
- Opposition to anti-immigrant harassment of all kinds
- The empowerment of immigrants and refugees
The Coalition’s members convene in small working groups addressing the issues of detention and deportations, Know Your Rights/Know Your Power, bullying and harassment, and much more.
The Coalition provides an “Immigrant Dignity Report” – a regular email dispatch collecting news, events, and calls to action. To receive the Report, contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Immigrant Dignity Coalition has two tiers of organizational membership: voting members and supporting members. (updated 4/4/19)
