The American Immigrant Society (AIS) wants to humanize, protect, celebrate, empower, promote, and inform over 45 million immigrants, together with their 36 million first generation offspring, comprising 1/4 of the population of our nation. Our primary mission is to spread the undeniable message that immigrants are vital for the moral and economic prosperity of our nation. We do this through transformative 21st century digital means at every turn. Our ambition is to digitally link tens of millions of like-minded Americans who all naturally wish to eliminate prejudice or discrimination against American immigrants.
All people have a right to a clean and healthy environment in which their communities can live, work, learn, play and thrive. Towards this vision, APEN brings together a collective voice to develop an alternative agenda for environmental, social and economic justice. Through building an organized movement, we strive to bring fundamental changes to economic and social institutions that will prioritize public good over profits and promote the right of every person to a decent, safe, affordable quality of life, and the right to participate in decisions affecting our lives. APEN holds this vision of environmental justice for all people. Our work focuses on Asian and Pacific Islander communities.

Families Belong Together opposes the cruel, inhumane and unjustified separation of children from their parents along the U.S. border with Mexico and at other ports of entry into the U.S. We protest the conditions in which these children are kept.
