Directed by Sandra Sanchez, AFSC’s Iowa Immigrant Voice Program (IVP) works with immigrants in Central Iowa to help build a sense of community so that new immigrants will be able to participate in the political processes in their communities. In collaboration with immigrant and immigrant-ally organizations, AFSC is educating and organizing for comprehensive immigration reform.

IVP’s Legal Services Program helps hundreds of immigrants and refugees from dozens of countries each year. The program is directed by Jody Mashek, who is accredited through the Board of Immigration Appeals (BIA).
