The Migrant Rights Network is a cross-Canada alliance to combat racism and fight for migrant justice. We are an alliance of self-organized groups of refugees and migrants and allies. We are forming in response to increased racism and anti-immigrant organizing in Canada in the lead up to the federal elections in 2019.
Across the globe, right-wing politics are gaining ground by demonizing migrants and Others. These politics become particularly pronounced in election years. With the federal election approaching, we knew Canada was not immune.
