What better way to truly understand a person's experience than to find yourself in their shoes for a moment? Our video game on immigration, ICED – I Can End Deportation, does just that. It puts you, the player, in the shoes of an immigrant to illustrate the way that unfair immigration laws deny due process and violate human rights. These laws affect all immigrants: legal residents, those fleeing persecution, students and undocumented people.

ICED was the first 3D game to deal with the issue of immigration. Since it's launch in February, 2008, it has been played by over 150,000 players.

So go ahead and check it out for yourself!

And if you want to read about it, the press liked it too! It was featured in the  LA Times, MTV News, Game Daily and has been covered on popular blogs including, Gothamist and The Huffington Post. In addition, countless community groups and organizations have used ICED to foster conversations that look at immigration as a human rights due process issue.
