Immigrant Action was founded in 2010 to ensure that immigrants have a seat at the table of the comprehensive immigration reform debate. 


We believe in the power of political and electoral organizing to turn immigrant communities into a potent political force in order to promote the rights and socio-economic well-being of immigrants and refugees in New York State.

In order to increase the political potency of the immigrant vote Immigrant Action endorses candidates and elected officials who stand up for immigrant communities and against anti-immigrant opponents. Immigrant Action engages in targeted advocacy on specific immigrant-related issues such as legislative scorecards, pointed advocacy flyers highlighting individual elected officials’ stances, and intensive grassroots and direct lobbying of elected officials.
