Educational Resources

There are many misconceptions about immigration that lead to xenophobic policies and practices. It is important to understand how the immigration system works so that we can identify and change it to be more equitable and fair. Use the resources below to help educate your class, church, or community group about the facts of immigration.


  • IJPC offers interactive, dynamic group presentations to explain how the immigration system works and doesn’t work. There are three main presentations we offer, all of which can be tailored to the request: Immigration 101, DACA and Dream Act Presentation, and our YES Speakers Bureau.
  • Teach about the changing demographics in the United States and how we can adjust to promote respect and equality for all people in this lesson for high school age students from Teaching Tolerance. 
  • Use the ‘Who is an Immigrant?’ lesson from Teaching Tolerance to help elementary school children understand immigration, identity, and inclusion. 


Host a screening of Documented, a documentary about undocumented Americans.
