Who We Are
Reform Immigration FOR America (RI4A) is a national campaign—hosted by the Center for Community Change Action—created to fight for immigrant rights and comprehensive immigration reform.
Immigrants founded this country, their labor helped build it, and they contribute to this country’s continued growth every day. Yet there are those on the far-right who wrongly use immigrants as scapegoats for all that is wrong with the country. The Reform Immigration FOR America campaign was created to fight back.
