This interest group is comprised of academics, practitioners, and students who are currently working with immigrant communities, identify as immigrants themselves, and/or who are looking to find ways to use their work towards justice for immigrant communities.
To identify ways in which community psychologists could assist and support new immigrant and refugees at the local level, to educate SCRA members about opportunities to collaborate with local agencies/organizations in support of immigrants and refugees, to provide information and tools that could be shared with local agencies/organizations to help immigrants and refugees, to advocate for the rights of immigrants and refugees at the national and international levels, and to work toward permanent protection, dignity, and respect for the migrant communities around the world.
