Immigrant Dignity Coalition

En español.

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
