Thousands of people right now are standing up to fight for the rights of undocumented migrants living in the UK. Undocumented migrants are part of our communities - and when we come together, we all benefit.

Want to be part of this fight for justice for our undocumented neighbours and friends? Firstly, if you haven't already, write to your MP to ask them to support the campaign for migrants' rights.

If you've taken that step already, take a look below for ideas of further action you can take, and how we can support you to do it.

1. Meet your MP

If you want to talk more in-depth with your MP, this action is for you. As a constituent, you have the right to ask your MP to meet with you and talk about a topic you’re passionate about. These meetings usually last about 40 minutes, and can be a powerful way to show MPs the impact that policies have in their communities.

The same goes for your local councillors, who make decisions about how things work in your local area. You can find out who your local MP and your local councillors are online.

If you'd like help arranging to meet your local MP or councillor, or you have a meeting booked, get in touch so we can make sure you have all the resources you need - email [email protected]

2. Download our toolkit for resisting the Hostile Environment

Under the Hostile Environment, borders are everywhere. We might be questioned about our immigration status at a job interview, at the doctor’s office, in our faith community or even just in the street.

The Hostile Environment affects us all, migrant and non-migrant. But that doesn’t mean it can’t be dismantled – in fact, it means that all of us, no matter where we’re from or how we got here, can have the power to bring it down.

There are lots of things you can do to build your power and be part of the movement to dismantle the Hostile Environment - but it can be hard to know where to start.

That's why we've put together this toolkit of information and resources, to put the power back in your hands. Maybe you want to build your knowledge about the Hostile Environment. Maybe you want to grow your community and get other people active, too. Or maybe you want to stand in solidarity with people affected by the Hostile Environment.
