Undocumented immigrants: a group that is often underexposed. We have to do something about that, according to our partner organizations ASKV/Steunpunt Vluchtelingen, Stek – foundation for city and church, De Regenboog Groep and Stem in de Stad. Together with other involved organizations, they have created the voting guide ‘Choose for undocumented migrants’.
