Founded in 2005, Alaska Institute for Justice ("AIJ") is a nonprofit organization dedicated to protecting the human rights of all Alaskans. AIJ has been on the frontlines of promoting justice and equality of treatment for immigrants and refugees residing in Alaska. The legal program provides statewide comprehensive low-cost and free immigration legal services to immigrants and refugees. This includes legal and advocacy services for crime victims including domestic violence, sexual assault and human trafficking.
AIJ is fundraising to support Alaskan families impacted by the Corona Virus (COVID-19) who do not qualify for federal emergency assistance.
On March 27, 2020, President Donald J. Trump signed into law the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act (CARES Act). The $2 trillion stimulus package, while a step in the right direction for millions, excludes Alaskan families who have family members who have not yet received their social security numbers because of their immigration status.
To raise at least $5,000 so we can help at least 10 Alaskan families. The more money we raise, the more families we can help.
WHERE WILL THE FUNDING GO?
To assist 10 individuals and/or families with small grants of $500 each to help pay for food and housing during this crisis. The funds will support international students, crime victims, and others who are unable to get social security numbers and/or mixed-status Alaskan families who are negatively impacted by COVID-19 and are not able to apply for relief under the CARES Act.
