We are in a unique position working on immigration issues in Montana, because there isn’t a large immigrant population. As a predominately white organization, we would normally be in the position of being an ally on these issues. However, we’ve stepped up to be a leader in this work, because the immigrant community is so isolated and marginalized. I always find it beneficial to be at events like this USHRF convening where I can learn from other activists who are working on immigration issues. It’s incredibly important to continue learning strategies and techniques to do outreach to immigrants and to create an environment where immigrant communities are safe to stand up, speak out, and be part of their local communities. The Universal Declaration makes it clear that human rights activists must work for immigrant justice. We try to base our work in this area on the human rights principles of dignity, fairness, and equality.
