The Issue

A community solution to a human rights challenge

Every day ICE agents arrest immigrants in their homes and workplaces using illegal tactics and violence. The arrests are devastating for families. Without help, a majority of people arrested will be detained and deported.

Rapid Response is an app that allows groups to create community response networks to provide emergency support to people undergoing an ICE arrest. Groups can operate 24-hour hotlines, dispatch legal observers to the scene, and document ICE abuses.
