Dear Scholars of Immigration and Ethnic Histories,

IMM PRINT: To End Immigration Detention


Have you, your family, or your community been affected by immigration laws and enforcement? Do you work for racial and social justice? Do you write, draw, paint, photograph, film, speak, or dream of a world without policing, jails, and borders? We need your powerful voice!

Imm Print is a radical new online publication that uplifts voices from immigration detention and empowers communities to dismantle the system from the inside-out. By centering migrant accounts, poetry, and artwork, supported by news, actions, and commentary, Imm Print collectively challenges and seeks to abolish intersecting forms of oppression that sustain immigration enforcement and mass incarceration. Imm Print will launch in the fall of 2016 on and we are currently accepting submissions for four spaces in the publication that will feature:

  • Stories from Detention
  • Visitor and Practitioner Stories
  • Detention News and Actions
  • Intersectional Experiences 

Submissions can be in any form, medium, or length, and can be published anonymously. Read more guidelines for each category and submit materials at:
