The NC Immigrant Rights Program (NC IRP) seeks to build a community which values that human dignity of all NC residents. We work towards a North Carolina in which immigrants and non-immigrants advocate together for fair and just policies that respect the rights of all.
We are supporting the #SanctuaryEverywhere movement and providing additional resources through our SanctuaryNC page. Our office is also part of the Communities Against Islamophobia project of AFSC. We are proud to support Juana Tobar Ortega and her family, the first person in the Southeast to enter Sanctuary in recent times. Learn more about her case here. We are providing support in different ways to many immigrant families during this time of crisis. Here's one way you can support.
Programs not curringly active in NC include our digital storytelling program, in which immigrants learn to document their own stories through short films and raise awareness among non-immigrants. The North Carolina Peace and Economic Justice Program was laid down in Spring 2017.
We are excited to celebrate AFSC's Centennial in 2017 locally! Mark your calendars for September 9 for a Gala Celebration and exhibit opening at Guilford College. Check out the list of all of our local Centennial events here. You are also invited to share a story of your experiences as a former staff, intern, volunteer, or program participant in AFSC over the decades at our PeaceWorks website.
