Friends of IDP

Become part of IDP’s circle of Friends, and join our fight for justice and human rights for all immigrants

The Immigrant Defense Project (IDP) was founded 20 years ago to combat an emerging human rights crisis: the targeting of immigrants for mass imprisonment and deportation. As this crisis escalate, IDP continues the fight for justice for immigrants at the intersection of the criminal and immigration systems.

Throughout the course of this twenty year struggle, IDP has remained stalwart in the defense of our vulnerable immigrant communities, rooted in the principle that no one is disposable. For many of us, this fight is as much about justice and human rights as it is about protecting and expanding the rights of family members, friends, and loved ones.

Today, we ask you to join our fight alongside immigrant communities by becoming a Friend of IDP.

Friends are a fundamental part of every community, and in this moment we ask that you commit yourselves to long term support of IDP’s work. Through monthly donations, the Friends of IDP provide us with a consistent and reliable source of funding that will allow us to plan ahead. 

When you become a Friend of IDP, you join a special group of people that renew their commitment to the fight for justice and the rights of all immigrants each month. Only together can we defend our immigrant communities. 

For more on IDP’s plans for the coming year and the need to donate at this crucial time, please read our letter here.
