The Alaska Institute for Justice (AIJ) is a nonprofit organization dedicated to protecting the human rights of all Alaskans. Since opening our office in 2005, AIJ has been on the frontlines of promoting justice and equality of treatment for immigrants and refugees residing in Alaska.  The Alaska Institute for Justice (AIJ) houses three programs: (1) Alaska Immigration Justice Project Legal Program;  (2) Language Interpreter Center; and (3) Research and Policy Institute

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. 

The Language Interpreter Center improves the quality of life for Alaskans with limited English proficiency by increasing access to legal, medical and social services through trained interpreters and translators. 

The Research and Policy Institute is dedicated to social and environmental justice research to inform public policy at the local, national and international level. Focus is on community-led research and developing guiding human rights principles in partnership with communities to address the safety, health, and well-being of local communities.
