NYLPI’s Health Justice Program is pleased to share the newly released Medical Providers Network (MPN) Fall 2021 Update Report as part of our commitment to recognizing the outstanding efforts and commitment of our medical provider volunteers. 

The report provides updated information about the network’s volunteers, an overview of the MPN’s cases and referrals received between May and October of 2021, and an overview of the initiatives that the MPN, in partnership with community and coalition partners, have participated in and led to demand change. 

This summer, the state of New Jersey put an end to contracting with Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) to detain immigrants in local facilities, marking a significant step in the movement towards abolishing the detention of people in the New York and New Jersey area. However, many people were transferred to other facilities rather than being released. The MPN continues to advocate for the immediate release of all individuals in ICE custody.  

You can read more about these organizing and advocacy efforts in the latest report.
