Migrants and refugees are being forced out from their homes in unprecedented numbers globally. Here in Canada, anti-immigrant protests and racially motivated attacks are on the rise. Meanwhile, right wing politicians who use anti-immigrant and racist rhetoric are getting rewarded with thousands of votes. If we simply stand still, there is a real danger for further rise in populist racisms in the lead up to the federal election in October.  

Now, more than ever, we must bring together people across the country from all walks of life around an anti-racist, migrant justice vision. Let us #UniteAgainstRacism and demand #MigrantJusticeNow!

MIGRANT RIGHTS NETWORK is building a social justice movement to combat racism and to fight for the rights of all those who are forced to leave their homes and cross borders. We are responding to the current political moment in Canada coordinating days of action on March 21, May 1, June 16 & September 2. We prioritize the leadership and self-organization of racialized, working class, migrants, refugees and displaced people. We do so in alliance with labour, community, multi faith, environmental, Indigenous, arts and media organizations. We strive to build global alliances for migrant justice.
