At Lush we believe that all people should enjoy freedom of movement across the world.
Thus, regardless of how anyone came to be in the community where they are, we believe safety and security is the right of everyone. Lush shops are places where everyone is welcome.
With the threat of increased deportations on the horizon, we can no longer stand back and say nothing. Standing shoulder to shoulder with fearless organizations and people, we are rallying our millions of customers to demand real policy change that guarantees safety for all.
Each one of us at Lush stands for freedom, equality, dignity, unity, and justice—will you join us?
All people deserve to have a sense of belonging and the opportunity to thrive. However:
- An estimated 11.3 million undocumented people living in the United States have no pathway to citizenship.
- Between 2011 and 2016, the number of people fleeing the Northern Triangle seeking refuge in neighboring countries increased by 2,249 percent.
- Since 2016, 24 migrants have died in ICE custody. And, under the ‘Zero Tolerance’ policy, 2,654 children were separated from their parents by the federal government.
- Since 1986, the United States has spent $263 billion on border enforcement, including $8.43 million a day on immigrant detention.
Communities are built by the people who live in them. Together, we can free our communities and demand permanent immigration solutions that ensure safety for all. No exceptions.
This includes providing a pathway to citizenship for all people, addressing the root causes of instability in the home countries of migrants, reforming or dismantling federal and state agencies that raid and deport members of our communities and modernizing the immigration system.
