Short description:
The Hotline for Migrant Workers (HMW) was founded in 1998 as a non-partisan, not-for-profit organization to defend the rights of migrants and refugees in Israel, and to combat human trafficking. The HMW assists vulnerable individuals, particularly those held in immigration detention, to uphold their rights. By combining client advocacy with targeted impact litigation, policy initiatives and public outreach we aim to achieve broad-based systematic improvements in policies and practices ensuring that the human rights of migrants in Israel are respected.
