Freedom for Immigrants

Freedom for Immigrants (FFI) is devoted to abolishing immigration detention, while ending the isolation of people currently suffering in this profit-driven system.

FFI monitors human rights abuses inside immigrant detention centers through our National Immigration Detention Hotline and National Visitation Network, connecting people inside detention to a team of trained hotline volunteers and a network of community groups that provide immediate support, record their personal testimonies, and build support for abolition.

Through advocacy and narrative change, FFI advances policies that divest from immigration detention and instead invest in systems of care that strengthen immigrant communities—a cornerstone of our vision for how to build a world without immigration detention.

We currently have a staff of 11 full-time employees, are on track...
