Coloradans for Immigrant Rights, a project of AFSC Colorado, organizes allies in support of immigrant rights. Our core values include the beliefs that immigrants deserve to be treated with respect, immigrants enrich life within our communities and our culture and immigrants should have a voice in the discourse over decisions that affect them.

Coloradans For Immigrant Rights’ primary goal is to create a welcoming climate for all people by building broad support for immigrant justice.

American Friends Immigrant Services History in Florida

The Central America Political Asylum Project (CAPAP) was established in 1984 as part of the AFSC's Florida Undocumented Workers Program and began when increasing numbers of refugees from El Salvador and Guatemala fled to the US seeking safe haven from the civil wars in their home countries. While some Salvadoran and Guatemalan refugees were able to legalize their status under the provisions IRCA, many more remained undocumented or in pending asylum proceedings.
