The American Friends Service Committee’s mission includes fighting for immigrant rights, in particular, through its Immigrant Rights Program in Newark, New Jersey.

The Immigrant Rights Program’s successful integration of legal services, advocacy and organizing has made a dramatic difference in the lives of immigrants in New Jersey and beyond by ensuring that immigrant voices are heard in policy debates, by assisting immigrants with challenging immigration cases, and by changing the narrative about immigration issues to influence policy.

The organization is currently looking for a DACA Organizing Intern. The deadline to apply is January 19, 2018. Click here for more information.

Let’s Drive NJ Campaign

As part of its focus on Public Safety and Protections, the New Jersey Alliance for Immigrant Justice works to expand applications for driver’s licenses within the immigrants community:

“In New Jersey, driving is a necessity of life, but for immigrant families, driving to work or to dropping one’s children at school can lead to deportation. Permitting all New Jerseyans who are qualified and eligible to drive —regardless of immigration status— to apply for driver’s licenses would make New Jersey’s roads and highways safer, strengthen our economy and increase the wellbeing of our families.”

The Alliance will have a Let’s Drive NJ campaign in support of the New Jersey Safe and Responsible Driver Act. Join the campaign launch with Assemblywoman Annette Quijano on January 11, 2018, at Snyder Academy, 42 Broad Street, Elizabeth.
