The Immigration Advocacy Network (IAN) is open to individuals as well as organizations and programs that serve, organize in, advocate for and/or do research on policies that advance social justice and/or humanitarian objectives for immigrants in Kansas and the United States of America.
- IAN is a vehicle for information sharing on critical issues affecting immigrants in America; briefings and strategizing on social justice issues affecting American immigrants; and building strategic partnerships, mutually beneficial cooperatives, and alliances that benefit immigrant communities.
- IAN members collaborate on joint projects, speaking tours, forums, workshops or advocacy campaigns, like its current campaign for humane and comprehensive immigration reform. It is not necessary for all IAN members to participate in any given project. Members may choose which project they want to be a part of.
- IAN members share their expertise through technical assistance and training for other IAN members (e.g., trainings on alliance building, media outreach or organizing).
- IAN committees prepare policy position papers for endorsement, and to media outlets for publication.
- IAN’s website, Facebook page and other communication tools are utilized to make its positions, projects, campaigns and resources readily available to its members, potential members and the general public. IAN also has the capacity to get its messages out through mainstream, ethnic and alternative media in the U.S. as well as the international media.
- IAN members actively work to expand IAN’s outreach to partner organizations and individuals.
