Immigration Task Force Mission: To educate the community about immigration issues and advocate for systemic change that will improve the lives of Immigrants.

2024 Task Force Efforts:

  • Building a relationship with the Kenosha County Sheriff with the goal of creating immigrant friendly policies;
  • Meeting with the County Emergency Management Coordinator to discuss a plan if an influx of immigrants would come to Kenosha
  • Working with the ELCA Outreach Center to develop a local legal immigration services program. Two Task Force members have completed the extensive training program.

Past Efforts include:

  • Holding community presentations to educate on what it means to be undocumented and how immigrants benefit our community 
  • Advocating for driver license legislation in WI through educational presentations and soliciting letters of support from local officials (This has been a long-term effort for many years);
  • Creating an immigrant support fund to assist them with basic needs;
  • Coordinating and establishing sponsorship teams to resettle three Afghan families in our community;
  • Working with our local DA to implement a deferred prosecution program for undocumented drivers ticketed for driving without a license.
  • Conducting workshops to assist young immigrants applying DACA and DACA renewals.

We are currently meeting on the second Tuesday of the month at 11:00am via zoom.  (Meeting time is flexible)
