What is ILM?

The Immigrant Liberation Movement (ILM) is a movement of organizers, immigration attorneys, directly impacted community members, and allies. We believe that a fundamental change in immigration and human rights policy is possible through our community's self-determination to resist and fight oppression. We advocate for immigrant justice through

  1. Self-defense programs including family preparedness and deportation defense trainings for undocumented immigrants, and
  2. Programs for allies including Migra Watch and rapid response coordination with other networks. 

ILM was created by the California Immigrant Youth Justice Alliance, East Bay Immigrant Youth Coalition, Faith in Action Bay Area/PICO California, and Pangea Legal Services in the Fall of 2016.
