MORE: Founded in August 2021, Cameroon Advocacy Network (CAN) focuses on blending strategic coalition advocacy efforts, community organizing, and campaign outreach to expose the poor treatment of immigrants in the biased Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) detention system. The coalition’s overarching goal is to achieve blanket relief for Cameroonians in the U.S. in the journey of hope. Those fleeing the violent civil war in Cameroon are now victims of the unfair immigration policy in the U.S. Learn more about CAN at:
