After the Administration cancelled temporary protected status (TPS) for Nepali TPS-holders in 2018, the RTF gave a grant to Adhikaar to support nearly 15,000 impacted Nepalis living in the U.S. Adhikaar continues to work on educational efforts geared toward lawmakers, legal services, organizing, and community defense to protect U.S.-based Nepalis.

In December 2019, the RTF funded CAIR Foundation for its “Love Knows No Border” protests. In collaboration with CAIR-San Diego, the American Friends Service Committee (AFSC) and the San Diego Immigrant Rights Consortium, CAIR coordinated the participation of American Muslims in an interfaith mobilization on the southern border on International Human Rights Day (12/10/19). CAIR leveraged their national profile to bring well-known American Muslims to the southern border with the intention of increasing attention, including media coverage, of the humanitarian disaster at the San Diego/Tijuana border. The “Love Know No Borders” action was voted the most valuable protest of 2018 by The Nation magazine.
