AFSC Denver organizes allies, faith communities and immigrants along the Front Range to support immigrant justice. From resistance to deportation to fomenting positive narratives, we advocate for policy change. We do this work through three groups of member-leaders: Coloradans for Immigrant Rights, the Metro Denver Sanctuary Coalition, and the Not1More deportation table.
Our vision is a Colorado where policy is defined by those directly impacted, and all people are valued and encouraged to contribute to their communities. Our work is based on an allyship and accompaniment model. We leverage our privilege so that we can effectively partner with immigrant leadership, taking direction from immigrant-based groups for collaboration.
