A briefing series on census messaging results organized by the Funders Census Initiative in partnership with the Democracy Funders Collaborative Census Subgroup.
This policy brief outlines some of the incoming administration’s top immigration priorities and examines challenges and opportunities ahead. Drawing on existing and forthcoming policy ideas from MPI’s Rethinking U.S. Immigration Policy initiative, the brief sketches several proposals that could begin to shape a U.S. immigration system that advances the national interest going forward.
The mass shootings in Atlanta on March 16 that took the lives of eight individuals—six of whom were Asian women—drew national attention. These senseless murders and the surge in anti-Asian hate incidents during the Covid-19 pandemic are the latest attacks in a long history of discrimination, harassment, scapegoating, and violence against Asian immigrant communities—particularly women and the elderly—that dates back centuries and is rooted in white supremacy and misogyny. Yet, much of this history has been rendered invisible, along with the pain these communities have suffered and the remarkable resilience they have shown.
GCIR's statement on the cancellation of DACA and a call to philanthropy to respond.
Relentless policy attacks, particularly over the past three years, have put pro-immigrant stakeholders, including funders, on the defensive. Since November 2016, many in philanthropy have allocated significant rapid-response funding to mitigate the impact of this ruthless anti-immigrant onslaught. Philanthropic pushback has been critical to addressing humanitarian needs and has laid the groundwork for long-term efforts to dismantle structural injustices.
GCIR’s Biennial National Convening will take place March 11-13, 2020, at the Hyatt Regency in Atlanta, Georgia.

In January 2019, I reflected on the extreme anti-immigrant policies that have come out of the White House over the past two years, the resulting human devastation, and the attacks that are expected to continue for the foreseeable future. I called on philanthropy to dream big and act with courage because we can only combat these injustices if we have a vision that surpasses the opposition’s in ambition and scope.
