The Core Mission of the AIJP is to protect the human rights of Alaska's immigrants by providing comprehensive and quality immigration legal services and facilitating community-organizing in immigrant and refugee communities. Our clients are low-income and the majority comes from Mexico, Central America, primarily El Salvador and many countries of South America. We also work extensively with Asian and African communities. We also devote a lot of time to representing immigrant domestic violence and sexual assault victims. One of our projects is dedicated to developing the leadership skills of immigrant women who want to create innovative domestic violence prevention strategies in their communities.
