The National Immigration Project fights to create a more just and less racist immigration and criminal system. Toward that end, we are seeking a pro bono film editor to help us create several different cuts of a video about our work out of existing footage. The video will be shared with potential funders, those impacted by our work, and partners. We have ideas for how the existing footage should be cut but are also open to your creativity. If you're interested, please reply with a short description of your editing experience and your availability. Please reach out with any questions. Thanks!

Mission Statement

The National Immigration Project is a membership organization of attorneys, advocates, and community members who are driven by the belief that all people should be treated with dignity, live freely, and flourish. We litigate, advocate, educate, and build bridges across movements to ensure that those who bear the brunt of racist criminal and immigration systems are uplifted and supported.

Description

We imagine a world where everyone can live freely and flourish without fearing for their life, health, security, or their ability to remain where they are. We envision a world where freedom of movement is welcomed and not feared, and where cooperative systems of support that honor human dignity in the experience of migration have replaced our current policies of enforcement, detention, incarceration, and criminalization.

In order to achieve our vision for the worl d, we must strive and fight for a fundamental shift in perspective--from punishment to transformative justice, from criminalization to compassion and cooperation, all centered around the people who are most impacted. We must fully acknowledge and reckon with the deeply racist and white supremacist roots of our current immigration, policing, and criminal legal systems. We need solutions that build on that recognition, not ones that tinker around the edges and fail to address root causes. We believe that immigrant rights is fundamentally a racial justice issue, and that our fight and the fight for criminal justice is one and the same.
