Immigrant Rights

At the heart of our mission lies a steadfast commitment to upholding the rights and dignity of immigrants, asylum seekers, and refugees. In a state as diverse as Michigan, we believe that every individual, regardless of their origin, deserves to be treated with respect and compassion.

Despite our shared values of inclusivity and equality, our nation has witnessed a troubling surge in divisive rhetoric and harmful policies targeting immigrant communities. From increased funding for ICE to the unjust separation of families through deportation, these actions perpetuate fear and hinder the potential of countless individuals striving for a better life.

At our core, we stand shoulder-to-shoulder with grassroots immigrant leaders, amplifying their voices and advocating for change. Together, we challenge unjust policies and champion a vision of a more equitable society—one where everyone has the opportunity to thrive, regardless of their background.

Whether at the local, state, or national level, we are dedicated to building bridges, not walls. Join us in our fight for a brighter future, where every person, regardless of their immigration status, is afforded the same rights, opportunities, and respect as any other Michigander.


In Michigan, a crucial campaign is underway—one that seeks to restore driver's licenses for all, regardless of immigration status, while simultaneously uplifting the dignity and respect inherent in their lives. The discriminatory license ban in Michigan not only impedes the safety and freedom of undocumented individuals but also perpetuates a system of inequality and injustice.

At the forefront of this movement is the Drive Michigan Forward (DMF) coalition—a statewide coalition dedicated to harnessing the wisdom, expertise, and creativity of undocumented individuals and allies. Together, we are forging a path toward legislative change, advocating for the passage of DRIVE SAFE bills in the Michigan legislature.

Central to the coalition's mission is the fundamental belief in liberation and dignity for all. Guided by principles of justice, respect, transparency, collaboration, and love, we work tirelessly to dismantle barriers and foster a more inclusive society.

Through grassroots organizing, strategic advocacy, and community engagement, we are building power from the ground up. By amplifying the voices and experiences of undocumented individuals, we are shaping policy that reflects the needs and aspirations of all Michiganders.
