The Alabama Coalition for Immigrant Justice is a grassroots, statewide network of individuals and organizations that works to advance and defend the rights of immigrants in Alabama. Our coalition consists of six non-profit organizations, and hundreds of individual members.
Our coalition is leading our state to a more equitable and just multi-ethnic, multi-lingual future – building a better Alabama for everyone, from the ground up.
We seek to do this in the following ways:
Developing grassroots immigrant leadership;
Building transformative alliances with African American communities, people of faith, LGBTQ movements, and organized labor;
Organizing for comprehensive immigration reform and stopping family separation through deportation;
Encouraging civic participation and voter engagement;
Transforming Alabama county by county – building alliances and accountability with elected officials, police, service providers and businesses, by utilizing strategic communications;
Advocating for just policies on local, state, and national levels.
We are a group of individuals and organizations working for the rights and dignity of all people by cultivating just policies, encouraging grassroots leadership and participation, building alliances, and amplifying the voices and contributions of immigrants in Alabama.
We envision an Alabama that values justice, nurtures equality, and protects the rights of everyone, regardless of race, gender, sexual orientation, religion, physical ability, or migratory status.
