This year, we bear witness to the long and arduous journey to freedom taken by immigrant survivors of violence. We acknowledge their strength and resiliency as they seek to attain the most basic of human rights — to live in safety and with dignity. Now, in the face of adversity, hostility, and a system that continues to attack some of our most vulnerable populations, it is on us to RISE & DEFEND.
