Asian Americans Advancing Justice Family Immigration Story Collection

Posted: February 02, 2018

Asian Americans Advancing Justice (AAJC) is rooted in the dreams of immigrants and inspired by the promise of opportunity.  AAJC advocates for an America in which all Americans can benefit equally from, and contribute to, the American dream.  AAJC's mission is to advance the civil and human rights for Asian Americans and to build and promote a fair and equitable society for all.

AAJC is leading a national story collection effort to highlight the importance of family immigration to Asian American and Pacific Islander communities across the country. AAJC wants to put a face on the issue and uplift the community's diverse immigration experiences, how they contribute to our country, and how family members support each other to be successful.

With your permission, stories may be shared on social media, with reporters, or with members of Congress. Members of Congress who advocate for the protection of family immigration sometimes use their time on the floor to share personal stories of people who are impacted by family immigration policies.

Anyone interested in participating in this story collection effort can either fill out this google form or email Bessie Chan-Smitham to schedule a time to talk on the phone.
