The John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation today announced nearly $2 million in grants to help immigrant rights and legal aid organizations in Chicago address the most critical needs of those seeking humanitarian protection or lawful status in this country.

The ACLU of Illinois is honored to receive one of these grants and is proud to stand with the many groups committed to justice and fundamental fairness during these urgent times.

We will continue to work with our coalition partners to protect the rights of immigrants and refugees and fight back against the Trump Administration’s cruel and unconstitutional policies.
