The 2020 Interdivisional Immigration Project was designed to support the development and advancement of strategies and practices fostering psychologists’ work in collaboration with on-the-ground community leaders (activists, community organizers, policy advocates, and non-profit leaders) who are aiming to protect immigrants from harm. Our project was particularly oriented towards working with activist and community leaders who work with undocumented immigrants. The goal of the project was to highlight a set of “bottom-up” or grassroots strategies created with collaboration among psychologists and community leaders to amplify advocacy work to protect immigrants.
This report was prepared by eight APA Divisions and NLPA in collaboration with immigration activists across the 5 regions of the US.
