Our Mission:

Centering Immigrant Survivors.

The Alliance for Immigrant Survivors (AIS) is a network of advocates and allies across the country dedicated to defending and advocating for policies that ensure immigrant survivors of domestic violence, sexual assault, trafficking, and other gender-based abuses have access to life-saving protections that all survivors of violence deserve.


Our Advocacy

AIS aims to build a network of advocates, service providers, organizations, and allies who address gender-based violence to take collective action on policies that impact immigrant survivors.


Take Action

Congress must listen to survivors and advocates. It's not enough to simply extend the dates of existing funding for the Violence Against Women Act (VAWA) grant programs and VAWA as it currently stands. Take action and tell Congress that it’s time to reauthorize VAWA!

AIS in the News

We’ve compiled recent media coverage that is relevant to the issues we care about, including immigration enforcement, asylum and gender based violence, and VAWA and survivor-based protections.

stories for impact

Our friends at ASISTA are seeking stories that show how VAWA self-petitions are a valuable tool to help survivors thrive and to escape violent relationships. Stories will help ASISTA & AIS with our national advocacy efforts to defend these life-saving benefits for immigrant survivors of domestic violence. Find out more!
