AFSC works for a world where all people have the power to determine where they live and the opportunity to thrive.

We work to address the economic and political drivers of migration. We also support migrants, refugees, and internally displaced people at each stage of their journey. We offer legal services, training, human rights monitoring, and humanitarian relief. And we support immigrant-led organizing and advocacy.
