In the wake of the 2016 presidential election, millions of undocumented immigrants faced increased uncertainty and anxiety about their futures in the United States. Immigrant-serving organizations across the country received a sudden spike in demand for help.
Immigrant rights leaders, service providers, lawyers, and technologists from across the country banded together. We pooled hundreds of resources. We collected a list of more than 1,000 organizations offering on-the-ground legal support, healthcare services, and more to undocumented families. We listened to the questions from our undocumented friends, partners, family members, and coworkers. We sought answers and resources, and compiled them into one easy-to-access online resource.
Since then, Informed Immigrant has become both a digital hub and offline network offering the most up-to-date and accessible information and guidance for the undocumented immigrant community.
Our name, Informed Immigrant, directly evokes our deep hope and ambitious mission of providing all undocumented immigrants with the knowledge and resources they need to feel prepared in our unpredictable political and enforcement environment.
