Coalition for Humane Immigrant Rights

Giving 1215

The Coalition for Humane Immigrant Rights (CHIRLA) is a California leader with a national impact led by diverse immigrant families and individuals who act as agents of social change. Driven by our mission to achieve a just society fully inclusive of immigrants, CHIRLA mobilizes individuals, communities, and coalitions to build power, transform public opinion, and change policies to achieve full human, civil, and labor rights. Since its founding in 1986, CHIRLA has served immigrant communities through legal services, community education, community organizing, policy and advocacy, civic engagement, member services, and youth leadership development. Our YES to Immigrants Forward campaign is a push to recognize immigrants as the Americans they already are by giving them broad access to permanent residency. Join us this giving season to make this dream possible for 11 million people.
