We Stand Together

Our Mission

The Jackson Heights Immigrant Solidarity Network (JHISN) supports our immigrant neighbors and their families, including those who are persecuted, by mobilizing against racism,  scapegoating, and xenophobia. We believe no human being is illegal; therefore, we:

  • Stand in solidarity with immigrants who are attacked, detained, separated from their children, or threatened with deportation or workplace discrimination
  • Communicate abuses to the public to raise awareness and solidarity for targeted immigrants
  • Mobilize our community to protest and advocate for immigrant rights
  • Disseminate information on rights and best practices to defend and protect immigrants
  • Seek to work with all groups and individuals fighting for immigrant rights while maintaining an independent stance not aligned with any particular politician or party

Who We Are

We are a group of people committed to standing in solidarity with our immigrant neighbors who are increasingly under attack. By alerting the public to abuses and disseminating information on the rights of immigrants, we strive to increase awareness and mobilize our community to support those in need.
