LA RED’s Our Stories, Our Futures: The Voices of Immigrant Communities Report

In June 2020, LA RED, Faith in Action launched a listening campaign to hear about immigrant leaders’ experiences over the last four years, to share hopes and dreams for the future, and to create a collective vision and priorities for LA RED within a shifting political landscape. The campaign trained 60 immigrant organizers and grassroots members to facilitate sessions in their communities, conducted 100 sessions in 13 states and the District of Columbia, and heard from 715 immigrant leaders with non-permanent immigration status, either undocumented, from mixed-status families, people with precarious status such as DACA, TPS, or Visas. LA RED used an anti-racist Latin American research paradigm method called Participatory Action Research to determine the key themes and findings and compiled what we learned from the listening campaign into a report titled, Our Stories, Our Futures: The Voices of Immigrant Communities.
