Our mission is to enable immigrants to build successful lives and enrich our community.  An important part of our work, therefore, is advocating for policies and legislation that align with that mission. We are not affiliated with nor do we endorse any political party. Rather, we support policies that are consistent with the due process protections enshrined in the U.S. Constitution that apply to all people who live in our country, regardless of where they were born.  

Beyond Constitutional guarantees, we support policies that promote inclusion, opportunity, and dignity for everyone because we know that such policies strengthen families, stimulate economic growth, enlarge the tax base, and build communities.  Therefore, we advocate on behalf of immigrants and refugees to ensure they are treated fairly and with the respect to which every human is entitled.

You will find our position statements on various proposed policies or legislation here.  We periodically update this section as events change, so we invite you to check back periodically.

If you would like to join us in advocating for our immigrant neighbors, please read our suggestions on 20 Ways to Welcome in our Community.
