AFSC’s Iowa program has worked to serve and empower the immigrant community in Iowa since 1995 by providing low-cost immigration legal services, developing effective organizing strategies to address local concerns, and building leaders and coalitions to bring about positive systemic change.
As a Department of Justice recognized organization, AFSC Iowa’s legal services program serves around 300 low-income immigrants per year, filing immigration paperwork for clients renewing Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA), citizenship, Temporary Protected Status (TPS), naturalization, family reunification and Legal Permanent Residency (LPR). We work to ensure that the stories and patterns of abuses that we hear through our program work are lifted up in policy debates to bring about positive policy change. We do this work to change the current narrative, transform systems, and achieve long-term socio-political change at all levels. Our advocacy and organizing work is driven by trained leaders who are those most directly impacted by the issues.
