BENEFITING: BLACK ALLIANCE FOR JUST IMMIGRATION
EVENT DATE: Apr 09, 2016
Join me to honor and commemorate the Black Alliance for Just Immigration's enduring legacy and continued work. Let's celebrate a Decade of Uniting the Diaspora!
The Black Alliance for Just Immigration (BAJI) believes that a thriving multiracial democracy requires racial, social and economic justice for all. African Americans and black immigrants are stronger together and we can win by becoming leaders in the fight against structural racism and systemic discrimination. BAJI was formed to bring Black voices together to advocate for equality and justice in our laws and our communities.
What We Do
BAJI educates and engages African American and black immigrant communities to organize and advocate for racial, social and economic justice. Local BAJI Organizing Committees in New York, Georgia, California and Arizona build coalitions and initiate campaigns among communities to push for racial justice. At the local and regional level, BAJI provides training and technical assistance to partner organizations to develop leadership skills, works with faith communities to harness their prophetic voice, and initiates vibrant dialogues with African Americans and black immigrants to discover more about race, our diverse identities, racism, migration and globalization. BAJI’s flagship project is the Black Immigration Network (BIN), a national alliance that brings together black-led organizations and programs to advance just immigration policies and promote cultural shifts our communities need. The BIN kinship provides a safe, communal space for diverse black communities to connect, engage and advocate for equality and justice for all.
“Thanks to the support of members and allies, the Black Alliance for Just Immigration has been a prophetic voice in the fght for racial justice and immigrant rights for the past ten years! I invite you to celebrate with us at our 10th Anniversary Gala, where we will be honoring inspirational leaders who have worked tirelessly to build a multiracial democracy that works for all.”
