Mission & Vision


Illegal The Project (ITP) is starting a movement to humanize the conversation around immigrants and their families in the U.S. through advocacy, coalition building, and community engagement in an effort to create a system where both immigrants and employers may thrive.


ITP envisions an America in which immigrants are no longer labeled as criminals and have the opportunities and resources they need to thrive in the U.S. We envision a nation with thriving industries no longer affected by labor shortages where legal and humane guest worker programs are accessible to those who wish to participate in them. And, we envision a system that provides enough opportunities to bring an end to the illegal employment and the exploitation of undocumented workers.
