The Colorado Rapid Response Network

Between 2016 and 2017, various pro-migrant organizations in Colorado created the Colorado Rapid Response Network.

In 2016, the Immigration Resistance Table brought together the Colorados People's Alliance, the American Friends Service Committee, Colorado Immigrant Rights Coalition (CIRC), Mi Familia Vota, Together Colorado, Padres y Jóvenes Unidos, advocacy organizations of the rights of migrants. Thus, in 2017, the Colorado Rapid Response Network (CORRN) was born, a statewide network that brings together volunteers to respond and inform the community about ICE activity and offer support to affected people.

"This is an important step in ensuring that the Colorado immigrant community has information that has been fully verified, has access to legal advice, and has an advocacy structure in place to resist civil rights abuses," explained Jordan Garcia. , a spokesperson for CIRC in 2017, when the Network was announced. Three years after its founding, CORRN has more than 300 volunteers and a strong program that managed to face raids by ICE during the previous administration.

In the event that immigration agents are in the home of an undocumented person, the CORRN recommends not opening the door, remaining silent, not signing anything, and contacting the support line they offer: 1-844-864-8341.

On the other hand, in the event that immigration agents look for the undocumented immigrant at work, the recommendations are the following: Remain silent, show identification from the United States or Colorado, do not sign anything and contact the aforementioned telephone line.
