The Arizona Coalition for Migrant Rights is an effort by local organizations and advocates to come together in an inclusive and diverse network from across the state to work pro-actively to change the social/political climate of immigration in Arizona and to stop the anti-immigrant tide. The Resource Guide lists organizations from Arizona’s migrant rights community. Its goal is to help facilitate communication between organizations across the state working on or concerned with the rights of immigrants, refugees and asylum seekers and to help community members identify local organizations to turn to, either for help or as volunteers. Information about the individual organizations has been entered by that organization and includes websites, the type of work they do and contact names with telephone numbers/email addresses.
The News section provides links to news articles and media coverage of local, state and national immigration issues.
Membership in the coalition is free (as of this listing).
