What We Do:

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, 14 grassroots immigrant community 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:

  1.  Developing grassroots immigrant leadership;
  2. Building transformative alliances with African American communities, people of faith, LGBTQ movements, and organized labor;
  3. Organizing for comprehensive immigration reform and stopping family separation through deportation;
  4. Encouraging civic participation and voter engagement;
  5. Transforming Alabama county by county – building alliances and accountability with elected officials, police, service providers and business.
  6. Utilizing strategic communications;
  7. Advocating for just policies on local, state, and national levels.
