IDP as long worked to disrupt narratives around the criminalization of immigrants. As the criminalization and deportation dragnet will likely be wider and more brutal than ever, we are planning on coordinating a new communications campaign that cuts through the hate and gets the stories of the most-impacted on traditional & social media.
IDP’s team of attorneys and advocates have extensive media experience and are available to answer questions and to walk journalists through individual immigrants’ cases.
To arrange an interview or request assistance with a story, please contact Michael Velarde, Development & Communications Director, at 646.762.8427 or at michael[at]immdefense[dot]org.
Please see below for articles written by IDP staffers, media mentions, and a collection of briefs on key issues.
