“This is not just my story, this is our story.”

The 'Our City Our Vote' legislation, which would empower certain non-citizens as NYC voters, is moving forward to a City Council vote.

Nearly one million New York City residents are immigrants who are currently unable to vote. But that could change soon.

Documented Talks: "Immigration Matters," Strategies for a Future Immigration System

Did you miss our recent panel discussion on building a more humane immigration system? Check out the summary below.

“Migration has been happening since the early days … it is part a natural human impulse to move towards freedom, flee danger, or reunite with family," said Amaha Kassa, founder of African Communities Together.

The U.S. immigration system has been a talking point for administrations for decades. How can the discourse about immigration advance?

How Green Empire Farms Failed to Stop One of New York's Biggest COVID-19 Outbreaks

More than 170 farmworkers, many of them immigrants, tested positive for the coronavirus at Green Empire Farms in western New York. Many of the workers lived in hotel rooms shared with two or three others.

Business continued as usual after COVID-19 was first detected among the workforce. Here's how that negligence led to one of the state's largest outbreak of the virus.

Last year, more than 170 migrant farmworkers caught COVID-19 at Green Empire Farms, an upstate New York greenhouse.

Sé lo que es pandemia

Desde el inicio de la pandemia, cientos de miembros de la comunidad indocumentada latina de Nueva York han interactuado con el equipo de Documented. De estas conversaciones que, en algunos casos llevan más de un año, periodistas han entregado información vital para sobrellevar las dificultades de una población que excluida de los programas de ayudas públicas porque, bajo los documentos oficiales, tecnicamente no existe.

El cineasta Frisly Soberanis tomó las conversaciones de Documented con la comunidad, y las unió con momentos de la vida cotideana captados en Corona, Queens, una zona de Nueva York predominantemente latina y una de las más afectadas en el peak de hospitalizaciones y muertes durante toda la pandemia.

Documented: Immigration as it matters to New Yorkers

DocumentedNY is a non-profit news site devoted solely to covering New York City’s immigrants and the policies that affect their lives. Co-founders Max Siegelbaum and Mazin Sidahmed teamed up with Civil to launch this initiative, that went live on June 11, 2018 as the only website to exclusively cover immigrant communities across New York. Our first story broke news on how New York immigrants pay 50 to 650 percent more in bond to get out of immigration detention than native-born New Yorkers pay to get out of jail. Later, we exposed that New York state court officers and clerks were helping ICE agents make arrests, despite the court administration denying it.

Our reporting was referenced on the floor of the New York City Council, by politicians across the state and even in the Canadian Parliament. Documented’s stories got a local court in Westchester to adopt a new policyregarding ICE arrests, led to the divestment of over $1 million in New Jersey taxpayer dollars from private prison companies and spurred national protests in Canada. A member of the Canadian parliament introduced a new bill partially due to the revelations in our story. Our work has been cited by The New York Times, The New Republic, Vox and WNYC, among others, as well as included on college and graduate school syllabi across the City. In April, we were profiled by the local Univision television station.

We are still nonprofit, independent and local news-oriented. This means we need your support to keep offering free content that serves those who need it the most. Consider making a donation here.

One of the biggest accomplishments in our first year was the creation of a Spanish-language WhatsApp newsletter, that aggregates the most important news of the week about immigration policies. Click here to check it out, and please forward it to anyone who may benefit from it. We empower through information, and we try our best to be where immigrant communities are.
