HRI Connect’s Mission

HRI Connect is a group of current and former HRI clients (and the people who love them!) that is coming together to build a community where everyone feels welcomed and embraced, regardless of who we are, what we look like, or how well we speak English. We all build this country where we live, no matter where we were born.


Connect's Platform

HRI is working in partnership with HRI Connect members to advance the group's priorities:


Expanding Access to Healthcare

HRI Connect envisions a DFW where everyone, regardless of immigration status, can get and afford the healthcare they need.

Limiting the Traffic Stop-to-Deportation Pipeline

HRI Connect advocates for policies and practices that reduce the anxiety and danger of driving to meet basic needs while undocumented and as a person of color.
