Oregon’s Interfaith Movement for Immigrant Justice (IMIrJ) equips people of faith and secular communities to advance immigrant justice through the direct accompaniment of immigrants facing detention and deportation, policy advocacy, and organizing. We envision an Oregon in which our economic and governmental systems shift through repair and reconciliation to create collective liberation and embody our faithful values of safety, dignity, and shared prosperity.
Founded in 2006, IMIrJ is in relationship with leaders from over 140 faith communities throughout the state of Oregon. We are an organization made up of diverse faith communities, faith leaders, and secular individuals called by our conscience to respond actively and publicly against acts of injustice to ensure our shared and collective wellbeing. Our accompaniment program focuses on physically accompanying immigrants as they navigate an inhumane immigration system. Our organization puts relationships at the center and seeks to accompany immigrant communities and allies whether they’ve been engaged in the work of immigrant justice for 3 days or 30 years.
