Atlanta, GA

Atlanta, GA

Our organizing work in Atlanta is the space where we bring Black Americans and Black immigrants together to solve issues of mutual concern. The city has long been known as a center of power, politics and culture, a cradle of the Civil Rights Movement and  often called a “black mecca.”

Los Angeles, CA

The BAJI LA Organizing Committee is a group of powerful volunteers committed to migrant’s rights, racial justice, and liberation for all oppressed communities. Members attend monthly meetings and plan campaigns and events to advance a collective vision for transformation.

New York, NY

New York, NY

New York City has a rich history of Black social movement and BAJI NYC benefits from a rich tapestry of partnerships. New York City is home to the largest Black community in the U.S. and one of the most diverse in the world; representing all corners of the black diaspora. New York City has a rich history of self-determination from the many Black social movements the city spawned. BAJI NYC members volunteer their time to plan and participate in campaigns that involve public education efforts, direct actions, and the arts. The New York City chapter is a highly skilled collective of veteran organizers, cultural workers, and technology savvy Black immigrants and African-Americans.

Oakland, CA

The BAJI-Oakland Organizing Committee is a volunteer-based chapter comprised of individuals who identify as Black/African descent. Everyday people and movement activists attend monthly organizing committee meetings to move forward several campaigns and projects that our committee is involved in.

Miami,  FL

Miami, FL

BAJI Miami is committed to deepening our connections with young people in the Miami area. We are partnering with youth-led organizations such as Power U and FLIC to gain a better understanding of the issues youth face and how we can support. Our goal is to launch legal clinics at different high schools in our neighborhood to support and check on undocumented youths’ status. This way we can engage with youth one on one and help them find programs that they may be eligible for to change their status.
