About Americans For Immigrant Justice
Americans for Immigrant Justice (AI Justice) is an award-winning non-profit law firm that fights for justice for immigrants through a combination of direct representation, impact litigation, advocacy and outreach.
In Florida and on a national level, we champion the rights of unaccompanied immigrant children; advocate for survivors of trafficking and domestic violence; serve as a watchdog on immigration detention practices and policies; fight to keep families informed, empowered and together; and pursue redress on behalf of immigrant groups with particular and compelling claims to justice.
There is no right to free legal representation in immigration proceedings and without AI Justice, which never charges for its services, countless adults and children without the means to hire an attorney would be forced to navigate our complex immigration system alone, essentially denying them the opportunity for justice.
To protect and promote the basic human rights of immigrants through a unique combination of free direct services, impact litigation, policy reform, and public education at local, state, and national levels.
To usher in an American society true to our country’s ideals and best traditions, where newly arrived immigrants are extended due process rights and treated fairly, where the United States is an oasis of freedom and justice for all, and where immigration is recognized not just as a link to our past, but also a bridge to our collective future.

We are constantly striving to provide an environment that promotes community and inclusivity and impedes discrimination. Management will proactively engage staff to embrace diversity in the workplace through trainings and other learning opportunities and provide other tools necessary for all to succeed in their fight for justice. All staff members must respect the differences, dignity, and well-being of all other staff members, clients, and community partners.
