Immigrant Rights

MSP button in support of immigrants

In response to the rhetoric and policies coming from Washington, DC, the MSP began an Immigrants Rights Rapid Response Network. Our goal is to protect our immigrant faculty, students and staff from unfair interrogation, detention, or deportation. In coalition with the other campus unions and with the Pioneer Valley Workers Center, we are compiling a database of people willing to mobilize when immigrants in our community are at risk. In fall 2017 we co-sponsored a training on our campus about how to be a rapid responder in our communities. We hope to provide additional trainings for our members and will post updates when rapid response is urgent. Please contact the MSP office to sign up for our Immigrant Rights Rapid Response Network.
