Advancing Our Agenda


Queer and Trans Justice Project

IAJE is a pro-LGBQIA+ and pro-trans organization. We are committed to uplifting, making space for, and empowering LGBTQIA+ immigrants and children of immigrants. The goals of our Queer and Trans Justice Project are to to build a LGBTQIA+ specific comité, to build a network LGBTQIA+ immigrants across Mississippi, to create an organizing culture within IAJE that is culturally competent and responsive when dealing with LGBTQIA+ immigrants’s issues, and to create a safe state for LGBTQIA+ immigrants and children of immigrants.  All ages are welcome!

Grassroots Organizing

IAJE's main strategy for making change and building power in Mississippi is grassroots community organizing.  Our beliefs that impacted individuals are the experts of their own lives, genuine relationships are at the core of building a movement, and all people - no matter immigration status - deserve dignity are the framework from which we work.

IAJE Volunteers

Making a difference. Generosity of spirit.  Lifeblood. This is what comes to mind when thinking of current IAJE volunteers.  From interpreting and translating to directing traffic at events to playing kickball with children, IAJE is seeking reliable and compassionate folks to volunteer with us.
