American Friends Service Committee’s Immigrant Rights Program

Founded in 1917, the American Friends Service Committee’s mission is to promote lasting peace with justice, as a practical expression of faith in action. Since the 1990’s, AFSC’s Immigrant Rights Program has worked in New Jersey with a goal of achieving policies that respect the rights and dignity of all immigrants, including a fair and humane national immigration policy. The Immigrant Rights Program’s successful integration of legal services, advocacy and organizing has made a dramatic difference in the lives of immigrants in New Jersey and beyond by ensuring that immigrant voices are heard in policy debates, by assisting immigrants with challenging immigration cases, and by changing the narrative about immigration issues to influence policy.  They offer legal services to immigrants who are in detention, facing deportation, seeking to reunite with families, or in need of protection. Their staff organizes in immigrant communities, training emerging leaders and ensuring that those people most affected by immigration policy are advocates for change.  The Immigrant Rights Program offers informational presentations and works with the media to educate communities about the system of detention and deportation that shatters families.  For more information, visit: www.afsc.org
