Immigrant Dignity Coalition

En español.

The Immigrant Dignity Coalition’s purpose is to inform, connect, and mobilize the Southwest Ohio / Northern Kentucky community to defend and protect the dignity of the immigrant and refugee community by working in partnership with one another.

What We Do:

The Immigrant Dignity Coalition meets monthly to inform, connect, and mobilize its members. Simultaneous interpretation into Spanish is provided.


  • Communicate issues facing the local immigrant community.
  • Learn about policy proposals and changes to immigration programs.
  • Hear updates about new events, training, and initiatives from partnering organizations.


  • Gather a team to work on solving a problem the community is experiencing.
  • Plug in to existing campaigns and efforts to create change.
  • Find opportunities to lead, volunteer, and donate.


  • Cultivate and activate leaders to build community power.
  • Show up in moments of public witness and solidarity.
  • Move personal networks and organizations into action to amplify calls for justice.
