Protecting the Human Rights of Alaskans

The Alaska Institute for Justice (AIJ) is a nonprofit organization dedicated to protecting the human rights of all Alaskans. Formerly known as the Alaska Immigration Justice Project, it transformed into the Alaska Institute for Justice to reflect the inclusion of an additional program dedicated to climate and social justice issues, the Research and Policy Institute.

We Are Hiring

Come join an exciting non-profit transforming lives, strengthening communities and protecting the human rights of all Alaskans

Our Mission

Our mission is to promote and protect the human rights of all Alaskans including immigrants, refugees and Alaska Native communities.  We house three programs:  Alaska Immigration Justice Project (Legal Services); Language Interpreter Center; Research and Policy Institute.

 

Alaska Immigration Justice Project

Legal staff provide critical legal services to Alaska’s immigrant and refugee communities, prioritizing legal representation for survivors of domestic violence, sexual assault and human trafficking and those fleeing torture and persecution in their country of origin. We strive to ensure that immigrants are aware of their legal rights and options and to provide high-quality, low cost, and free legal representation.

Language Interpreter Center

The Language Interpreter Center provides access to trained Alaska-based and national language interpreters and translators who remove communication barriers between legal, medical and social service professionals and limited English proficient individuals.

Climate and Social Justice Policy and  Research

The climate justice research projects work with Alaska Native communities to protect and promote their human rights through community-based climate change adaptation.
