Building immigrant power since 2000.

Our programs are designed to support families over years and even decades, first tackling crises – like an impending eviction or debilitating hospital bill – and then supporting community members to get on their feet, perhaps by training for a healthcare career or stabilizing their immigration status, and finally engaging clients and students in organizing to address root causes of our problems. The result is a resilient and tight-knit community that nurtures the self-sufficiency and leadership of each member.

Legal Services

We help immigrants an their families find their ways through the complex U.S. immigration system by conducting legal immigration right outreach and providing low-cost legal immigration and naturalization services.



We work across the state to reach out to immigrants and allies, support communities working for justice and tolerance, and educate Mississippians about the contributions and struggles of immigrants in our state.
