Project Manager (Immigrant Movement Visioning Project) National Immigration Law Center. About the Organization.

In 2023, IMVP shifted the initial orientation as an episodic “process” designed around envisioning the future and toward an ongoing “project” in implementation mode in which we will focus on concrete actions to more deliberately advance the IMVP’s long-term vision for . Five Freedoms. — the freedom to stay, the freedom to move, the freedom to work, the freedom to thrive, and the freedom to transform. In this new phase, IMVP will focus on cultivating a healthy, powerful movement ecosystem and serve as a hub for the movement to collectively develop and align on strategies designed to bring the Five Freedoms to life in our communities.
