OUR VISION

We are a non-institutional, non-partisan, autonomous committee comprised of and organizing with migrants and refugees. We understand borders and the architecture that extends beyond them, including military, prisons, law enforcement, border agencies/agents, and politicians, as state oppression.  


As long as migrants and refugees are subject to this oppression, we will work to support them and honor them by:


  • Creating bridges between migrants and community resources.

  • Creating spaces of transition and support to honor and raise up the dignity, humanity, and agency of every migrant.

  • Shutting down the Otay Mesa Detention Center.


We want to create a world where there is no profit in human suffering. People need to be free.
