our work

programs, resources, chapters, networks

BAJI is a human rights organization working at the intersection of racial justice and immigration justice.  Through our work we advocate for the nearly 10 million Black immigrants in the United States, while also engaging African-American communities on racial justice.  

Our programs and resources provide detailed research and education for impacted communities, and our chapters actively engage Black immigrants and their supporters.

black immigration network

The mission of the Black Immigration Network (BIN) is to contribute to the social and economic well-being of U.S.-born Blacks and Black immigrants (immigrants to us means immigrants and refugees) by organizing in these communities, developing the leadership of Black people, and advocating for policies that benefit Black communities. BIN is a national network of organizations and individuals in the United States that works at the intersection of race, immigration and globalization. BIN also seeks to build alliances with other organizations and networks in immigrant communities and communities of color for mutual benefit.
