About Us
The Alaska Institute for Justice is dedicated to protecting the human rights of Alaskans. The Alaska Institute for Justice has two key statewide programs. The Alaska Immigration Justice Project is a legal services program, which provided immigration representation to 850 Alaskans in 2014. The Language Interpreter Center is focused on increasing access to medical, legal and social services for limited English proficient Alaskans.

How Pick.Click.Give. makes a difference
The Alaska Immigration Justice Project (AIJP) provided immigration legal representation to 850 Alaskans. Our priority is to provide legal services to human trafficking, domestic violence and sexual assault survivors. We provide these services to approximately 300 Alaskans each year. Immigration status is one of the most powerful tools an abuser can use to prevent an immigrant from accessing safety and protection. AIJP staff also represent those who have fled persecution and torture and are seeking asylum in the United States and those seeking to reunite with family members residing outside of the United States.

The Language Interpreter Center trains bilingual Alaskans to work as interpreters with medical, legal and social service professionals. We have trained approximately 300 Alaskans speaking 40 different languages to work as interpreters. Our trainings programs have occurred in Anchorage, Bethel, Dillingham, Fairbanks and Barrow. We also provide an interpreter referral service so that medical, legal and social service professionals work with the interpreters we have trained to increase access to their services for limited English proficient Alaskans.
