Immigrant Rights

UACT's immigration mission

UACT's mission is to champion for legislation that will create a process for all undocumented immigrants to earn citizenship and insist that enforcement policies must be made to be consistent with humanitarian values and with the need to treat all individuals with respect. 

UACT's work in 2018

United Action is an active member of the Connecticut Immigrant Rights Alliance. This alliance is committed to finding relief for the undocumented immigrant community and is resisting enforcement measures that are tearing apart families in Connecticut and across the nation.

United Action Ct is planning the following for 2018:

  • Holding monthly "Know Your Rights " and/or "Emergency Preparedness" workshops
  • Conducting periodical legal clinics
  • Developing Rapid Response plans in the New Britain/Plainville/Bristol and Meriden/Middletown areas
  • Educating the non-immigrant population on the myths and difficulties of the undocumented community
  • Providing assistance to families and individuals that are threatened with detention or deportation
