Advocacy for Immigrants

The circumstances for people to immigrate (internationally) or migrate (domestically) can be various, including employment, studying abroad, persecution, survival, or simply seeking other options. The global and political crisis makes it harder for many people to stay in their native country.  The international processes and acceptance for legal status in a country of destination often result in lengthy and complicated approval. Therefore, many agencies around the world, nationwide, and locally work to address structural inequality and violence, increase awareness, build a movement for justice, and promote engagement within the community in favor of immigrants.

In Tennessee, we have several agencies working on these purposes. Below you will find a list of these non-profit agencies that serve the immigrant community in our state.
