Solidarity with Indigenous migrants: Stop pandemic deportations and Title 42 expulsions!
After a year of coordinating with over 40 Central and North American organizations in a campaign against the Asylum Cooperative Agreements (ACAs), deportations during the pandemic, and Title 42 expulsions, we are well poised for concrete wins in 2021.
U.S. terminates Asylum Cooperative Agreements (ACAs)
For over a year, NISGUA has coordinated with 40+ Central and North American organizations in a campaign to end these inhumane and illegal agreements. As we celebrate this major win, we know that the work is far from over. Today we recommit to ending pandemic deportations and Title 42 expulsions.
Our 2020 Accomplishments
Together with our partners, NISGUA was called to face the storms of 2020. Though we have been shocked by it all, we are also not surprised: communities at the frontlines of climate change and socioeconomic injustice have long predicted the environmental chaos and authoritarian violence we are experiencing. Today we take a collective breath and step back. Surveying all that has changed in this unprecedented year, we are moved by what we have accomplished.
Become a sustainable donor today!
This year we are celebrating four decades of accompaniment, cross-border organizing, and relationship building. Will you become one of 40 new monthly donors to honor this legacy and ensure the sustainability of NISGUA's work for the long-haul.
