Landis Center's MOSAIC Tutoring Team started this conversation in the Fall of 2020 by addressing the topical subject of forced sterilization efforts occurring in ICE detention camps. This spring, the MOSAIC Tutoring Team wanted to continue this conversation on ICE by addressing and bringing awareness to a local detention center that is run by ICE, Berks County Jail. We brought in two phenomenal organizations that focus on immigration rights and the overall goal to shut down these detention centers.

The Organizations on the panel are Free Migration Project (FMP) and Movement of Immigrant Leaders in Pennsylvania (MILPA)

Free Migration Project (FMP)
Free Migration Project is a Philadelphia nonprofit founded in 2016 that works at the intersection of law and community organizing to promote freedom of movement as a basic human right. We envision a world where free movement of people is the legal norm. We call for recognition of a human right to migrate and the abolition of deportation.
The Free Migration Project represents immigrant clients in their legal proceedings, provides legal support and training to organizers and advocates, engages in public education and outreach, litigates in the public interest, and advocates for fair and open immigration laws. We represent clients in public deportation defense campaigns and provide legal and strategic support to undocumented organizers fighting for immigrant rights. We believe that working with undocumented clients to elevate their stories and struggles has helped to educate the public and engender support for undocumented communities in Pennsylvania and beyond.

Movement of Immigrant Leaders in Pennsylvania (MILPA)
MILPA is a network of families that fight for the dignity and human rights of each family, regardless of immigration status. Our priorities include fighting for an inclusive citizenship path for all 11 million immigrants and fighting for a drivers license for all, regardless of immigration status. We facilitate the education, organization and participation of communities for the defense and promotion of their constitutional rights so that as communities we can work to create political, economic and social conditions where each human being is treated with equality and rights.
