Grassroots advocacy is vitally important to LIRS’s mission of standing with migrant and refugee communities across the country. The support of local groups and individual advocates adds strength to our voice on Capitol Hill. Over the course of the year, LIRS advocates visit members of Congress, write letters and op-eds, hold vigils and rallies, and send thousands of email and social media messages to lawmakers. You can take part in these important efforts today!
