Black Immigrants and the Fight for Racial Justice

In the wake of the profound racial disparities exposed by the pandemic and the racial justice uprising of 2020, the Biden administration has fallen far short of its stated commitment to prioritize Black communities. For example, the U.S. expelled or deported 15,000 Haitian men, women, and children—many of whom were seeking asylum—in the first 11 months of the Biden administration. In addition to being more likely to be deported than other immigrants, Black immigrants are more likely to be detained, are more frequently put in solitary confinement, face higher bonds to be bailed out of detention, and are more likely to be denied a visa or asylum. In this session, we will explore ways in which funders can strategically shift more money and power to Black immigrants and confront anti-Black racism.
