Migrant Rights are Human Rights! This poster was commissioned by the National Network for Immigrant & Refugee Rights (NNIRR), based in Oakland, CA. The piece was reproduced as an offset poster and silkscreen limited edition print.
NNIRR initiated a December 18 Campaign to provide support, resources, and information to groups who are interested in celebrating International Migrants Day. The poster celebrates solidarity with immigrants. In a period when national crises have stirred public anxieties about immigration and when unfair policies and discrimination against immigrants have intensified we need to call for respect and justice. December 18 provides an opportunity to highlight important issues affecting immigrant communities. It is also a reminder of the right guaranteed to all migrants by the International Migrant Convention, and the need for all nations to approve the convention and adopt its standards.
This piece was completed as part of a grant by the Oakland Cultural Arts Commission.
