We are witnessing a U.S. assault on migrants on a scale that will have implications for human rights in our hemisphere for years to come. The Trump administration’s immigration and border security policies threaten great harm to thousands of people in the United States and abroad. This is an unprecedented time, and one in which we need to act quickly.

We are expanding our efforts on border security and migration in order to push back and take a stand. WOLA’s Beyond the Wall Initiative is a four-pronged approach to respond strategically and effectively to the harmful policies of the Trump administration.

With your help we will:

1. Stop the Wall

Stop funding for Trump’s useless and expensive wall, as well as a similarly dangerous and unnecessary effort to ramp up border security agents.

2. Investigate and Expose Abuses

Investigate and expose abuses against migrants, asylum seekers, and deportees at the border and on their journey by working with partners on the ground. Human rights are part of our values as a nation—honoring them doesn’t threaten us, it strengthens us.

3. Help Asylum Seekers 

Help people seeking asylum by providing expert information to activists and attorneys about the situation on the ground in Central America.

4. Advocate for U.S. Funding to Central America 

Advocate for continued, robust, accountable, and transparent U.S. aid to Central America focused on tackling corruption and bolstering the capacity of police and justice systems to prevent and reduce violence and insecurity. The creation of safer communities with greater respect for human rights would address the root causes of migration and the reasons why people are forced to migrate.

How You Can Make a Difference

Financial support from people like you is what allows WOLA to be effective and strategic in our advocacy. By making a contribution to the Beyond the Wall Campaign, you are taking action to defeat these policies and protect migrant rights.

WOLA does not accept U.S. government funding, and will rely on individuals and private foundations to support this essential advocacy. WOLA must secure $1.5 million to fully implement the Beyond the Wall Initiative for the next two years.
