From a 10-year old girl with cerebral palsy who was detained at a checkpoint on her way to undergo emergency surgery, to immigrants not reporting sexual abuse or domestic violence in fear of deportation, the U.S.’s deportation machine chips away at the safety, security, and rights of immigrants, and threatens the fabric of all our communities.

Video documentation can help communities expose the illegal and manipulative ways that Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) operates, and channel that knowledge to fight back.

This project offers a deep dive into how to safely, ethically and effectively document immigration abuses through tipsheets, case studies, videos, and more.

Together we will expose ICE, demand justice, share our truths, and remind the perpetrators: the world is watching.

No bans. No walls. No deportations.
