2017 • 1 year • Chicago Commitment

Founded in 1988, the Illinois Coalition for Immigrant and Refugee Rights (the Coalition) works with its 130 member organizations to promote the rights of immigrants and refugees, and to encourage their full and equal participation in civic, cultural, social, and political life. The Coalition serves as the central coordination hub for its members, ensuring continuity and integration between local, state, and nationwide planning, organizing, and advocacy. It educates its member organizations and individual immigrants on state and federal immigration policies; organizes residents to engage in civic actions; and serves as a conduit for reform advocates in recommending policy proposals to state and federal officials. This award for general operating support provides flexibility to the Coalition as it responds to the potential for a significant increase in deportations, a bar to refugee resettlement, and protracted litigation over Illinois jurisdictions that decline to enforce federal immigration law.
