Black Alliance for Just Immigration

Black immigrants are in danger.

The 2016 election has been historic for all the wrong reasons, and the results are shocking. President-elect Donald Trump targeted Muslims, refugees and African-Americans on the campaign trail, and his words were not just rhetoric. The racism and xenophobia expressed during rallies and speeches meant that Black immigrants and their families faced actual attacks.


We can only imagine what's next.

Black immigrants are in dire need of support; especially during uncertain times like this. With your support, BAJI will be able to continue to fight for Black immigrants, families, and communities. Our goal this year is to raise $25,000 for the initiatives outlined below.

The Black Immigrant Defense Fund will make these BAJI initiatives possible.

After 50+ years in the modern immigration system, it was finally possible to constructively analyze black migrant lives and how they are affected by U.S. policy. Townhalls have been held at Fordham University and West Oakland Youth Center, with the next scheduled for Nov. 16th at Mt. Zion Church of God (New York).
