With freedom as our guiding principle, the New York Immigrant Freedom Fund (“NYIFF”) pays immigration bond for community members who are unable to afford it themselves, secures their release, and reunites them with their families and communities. Your support will help us to fight back against a system that tears apart families and serves to harm, not protect, immigrant communities.
NYIFF is a program of the Brooklyn Community Bail Fund in partnership with an advisory board of organizations fighting to dismantle our punitive immigration and detention systems. The advisory council consists of African Communities Together, Black Alliance for Just Immigration, Families for Freedom, Immigrant Defense Project, Make the Road New York, and the Surveillance Technology Oversight Project.
