Open the borders, close the jails

MISSION & vision

Free Migration Project works at the intersection of law and community organizing to promote freedom of movement as a basic human right. We envision a world where free movement of people is the legal, social, and cultural norm. We call for a human right to migrate and the abolition of deportation.

LEGAL SERVICES

We provide direct legal services and engage in impact litigation in service of our mission. We aspire to integrate legal representation to empower immigrant communities to liberate themselves.

EDUCATION

We strive to educate the public about the immigration system functions, the harms of border restrictions what it produces, and why it needs to be abolished.

Free Migration Project Advocacy

ADVOCACY

We engage in collaborative campaigns where impacted communities and allies participate in legal representation, and community organizing to achieve the abolition of immigrant detention and deportation.
