As we endeavor to serve the needs of the immigrant population in our state, from time to time a project comes along that we can embrace.

These projects are both important and relevant to our mission statement, and help us to provide a more comprehensive service to those who need it.

Alaska Immigrant Rights Coalition

The Alaska Immigrant Rights Coalition is a collaboration of community members to ensure that the rights of immigrants and refugees are protected.  Meetings occur regularly throughout the year to educate the immigrant and refugee community on changes to state and federal laws, including immigration law.  If you are interested in attending these meetings, please contact AIJP.
