In 1995, when the anti-immigrant wave was sweeping the nation, Crossroads Fund provided timely support to the Korean Resource and Cultural Center – jump starting our organization and the unprecedented organizing of Korean Americans in Chicago. It was also a historic opportunity for us to work in alliance with Latinos, Polish Americans, Chinese Americans, and many other immigrant communities to build multi-ethnic coalitions to impact U.S. immigration policies. – Eun Sook Lee, National Koream American Service and Education Consortium.
Activists in Chicago sparked a national movement when they took to the streets in 2006 to protest anti-immigrant legislation. Crossroads Fund has been a longtime supporter of immigrant rights groups in Chicago, as they engage in advocacy work, youth organizing, education, coalition building between immigrant communities, and direct action in support of undocumented people.
