Formed in the aftermath of September 11th, RWG is a national coalition of civil liberties, national security, immigrant rights and human rights organizations committed to protecting the rights of all people in the U.S. RWG seeks to ensure that everyone in the United States is guaranteed due process and human rights protections, regardless of citizenship or immigration status, race, national origin, religion or ethnicity. With more than 250 member organizations across the United States, RWG works to mobilize a grassroots constituency and advance an advocacy agenda that demands accountability from the U.S. government for the equal protection of human rights.
In 2008, the RWG coalition launched a campaign to Hold the Department of Homeland Security Accountable! which asks the U.S. government to end immigration raids that deny due process, inhumane detention conditions and indefinite detention, and naturalization backlogs caused by the profiling of applicants based on national origin or religion. In 2009, the coalition will launch a new Campaign to End Racial Profiling, which will target post-9/11 profiling, war on drugs profiling, and profiling by local police trying to enforce federal immigration laws.
