Immigrant Rights

Rather than being used as tools of empowerment, ballot measures have been frequently used to target immigrants and strip away rights. Along with our state and national partners, BISC is committed to fighting these attacks on the ballot, working for comprehensive reform and flipping the script to support measures that advance the rights of all Americans.
