Viatorians proudly support the National Network for Immigrant and Refugee Rights (NNIRR), which works to defend and expand the rights of all immigrants and refugees, regardless of immigration status.
Since its founding in 1986, the organization has drawn membership from diverse immigrant communities, and actively builds alliances with social and economic justice partners around the country. As part of a global movement for social and economic justice, NNIRR is committed to human rights as essential to securing healthy, safe and peaceful lives for all.
