MRN’s vision is a society in which:
- People are free to move because migration is, and has always been, an integral part of the human experience.
- Everyone, including all migrants, live in a society which is free from all forms of oppression and discrimination.
- Nobody’s access to safety, rights and security should be determined by their immigration status.
We place at the heart of our work the experiences and perspectives of migrants to ensure we are accountable to those impacted by immigration and wider policies and practices.
- Equity for all migrants
We work for the rights and justice of ALL migrants, and focus on issues that are side-lined or underrepresented.
We team up with migrants, grassroots organisations, activists, lawyers and academics to oppose hostile and unfair policies, tackle negative media narratives and campaign for transformational change.
We approach and inform our work with the understanding that people will experience multiple interconnected forms of oppression, where immigration status/migration experience is but one factor.
We strive to be daring, determined and speak ‘truth to power’ to obtain justice and equality for migrants. We also recognise that where we hold power, we must be held to account by those affected by immigration systems.
We build the power of those affected by the immigration system and work in alliances to create movements which strengthen efforts to further the rights of ALL migrants.
