Drop the I-Word is a public education campaign by grantee Applied Research Center and powered by immigrants and diverse communities across the country that value human dignity and are working to eradicate the dehumanising slur “illegals” from everyday use and public discourse. The i-word opens the door to racial profiling and violence and prevents truthful, respectful debate on immigration. No human being is illegal.
