The ACLU of Georgia National Security/Immigrants' Rights Project started in March 2008. The project is aimed at bringing Georgia and its localities into compliance with international human rights and constitutional standards in treatment of refugee and immigrant communities, including immigrant detainees. To that end, a variety of strategies are employed including impact litigation, legislative advocacy, human rights documentation, coalition-building, public education, training of attorneys, and organizing. The project’s current priorities include: immigration detention; racial profiling and local enforcement of immigration laws; undocumented student access to public higher education; immigrant communities’ access to court; discrimination against Muslim, Middle Eastern, and South Asian communities; and surveillance of Muslim and immigrant communities. The project is headed by Azadeh Shahshahani
