Who We Are
We defend the rights of African refugees and immigrants within countries where they seek refuge and opportunities.
We achieve our mission by providing culturally appropriate and linguistically accessible services through direct legal aid, community legal empowerment, case management, strategic litigation, and policy advocacy.
Our work helps them assert their rights to live safely without harassment and fear, obtain decent shelter and food, move freely, access employment, education and healthcare, and enjoy equal protection under the law.

Because I compiled my papers myself for immigration and made a mistake on one question, USCIS sent me a letter charging me alien smuggling. I don’t speak English well. Thank ALC for taking my case because my family and I can now sleep in peace.
I tried to get my documents from my father and he refused because I marry someone he did not like. Without his help, today I am a US citizenship all thanks to the wonderful work you did despite his refusal to help.
Thank you for stopping my deportation to Liberia. I had no-one there because i left the country when I was only 5 years old when rebels killed my family. God bless you for given me another chance to stay in the United States.
necessarily have the time, they just have the heart.
