The We Are Home campaign is a groundbreaking nationwide multi-racial, multi-ethnic, multi-generational coalition calling on the Biden administration and Congress to take immediate action to protect millions of immigrants who call this country home and end the cruelty of our interior detention and deportation system.
Our vision for America rejects xenophobia, anti-Blackness, and Islamophobia. We demand a path to citizenship for 11 million undocumented immigrants and a swift undoing of all of the damage of the last four years. We are committed to building a modern and functional immigration system that recognizes immigrants’ humanity and rights, unifies families and ensures that home is truly here for all of us.
