Advocacy and Organizing

ICOM is dedicated to advancing systematic changes to legislative and political structures to better protect the human and civil rights of immigrants and shield them from racial profiling and nativist bigotry.

By working in coalitions with immigrant rights and legal organizations, ICOM advocates for policy changes at all governmental levels, such as creation of immigrant affairs offices in Minneapolis and Saint Paul, establishment of the immigrant legal defense funds in Hennepin and Ramsey counties, and State Driver’s Licenses for All.

We are currently leading campaigns to oppose expansion of ICE detention facilities in Sherburne County or anywhere in Minnesota and to have the name of Episcopal Bishop Henry Whipple removed from a building that is the source of terror and sorrow within our immigrant communities.
