The Newark office is home to the Immigrant Rights Program, the New Jersey base of the Healing Justice Program, and the online home for the New York Metro Internship Project.

The Immigrant Rights Program integrates legal services, advocacy, and organizing, providing legal representation in challenging immigration cases and also ensuring that immigrant voices in New Jersey and beyond are heard in policy debates. The program responds to myths about immigrants through presentations and media work.

The New York and New Jersey Healing Justice and Prison Watch Programs empower individuals harmed by criminal justice policies and violence to heal and transform the conditions under which they live. We recognize and advance the worth and dignity of all people in and around the criminal justice system.

The New York Metro Internship Project engages college and graduate students with hands-on, summer work experiences with AFSC.
