Advocacy and Policy

Policy advocacy is a key component of any effort to bring about systemic change. Pressing for federal, state and local immigration policies that promote and protect the human and civil rights of immigrants has always been a critical part of the work of the staff, members, volunteers and community partners of CHIRLA. Whether it’s visiting and educating legislators or administrative agencies, empowering community members to civically engage, or researching and tracking changes in immigration law, CHIRLA’s advocacy work continues to be a progressive voice that promotes economic justice for immigrants in Los Angeles and throughout Southern California.
