Keeping Families Together Campaign

Our nation’s broken immigration system tears families apart. With 11 million undocumented immigrants in our country, the largest grassroots immigrant rights organizations are launching a new campaign to fix our patchwork of failed and mismanaged immigration policies so that families have a pathway to citizenship and can stay together.

These families will be the voice of the “Keeping Families Together” campaign. They will lift the veil on the moral crisis of family separation and tell their story of our broken immigration process to illustrate why we need change now.

Keeping Families Together highlights the stories of immigrant families who struggle to cope with the heartbreaking effects of our country’s broken immigration system. The website encourages people to share their personal stories and empowers them by building a community to advocate for immigration reform.

Uniting with immigrant activists, advocates and champions, these families will demand a path to citizenship for the 11 million undocumented immigrants in this country. The Keeping Families Together campaign tour will stop in cities across the country, including New York, Detroit, Kalamazoo, Los Angeles and Washington, D.C., among others. Family stories will be told at campaign rallies, vigils and community dinners and will be recorded and shared with policymakers.

Keeping Families Together is a project of the Fair Immigration Reform Movement and powered by the Center for Community Change. It brings together individuals, community organizations and leaders, and elected officials from across the Nation who support humane immigration reform and policies to keep families together.

Congress is in charge of the law and are the only ones that can change the law, not the INS, why not send the message to Congress?
