History: The AALV was founded more than seven years ago as a way for the small African community at that time to get together for social events as well as to discuss the challenges of being in America. Over time, AALV has steadily grown into a small social services agency with full-time staff. In 2009, AALV made a decision to not only serve Africans, but to provide services to all refugees in Vermont including Bhutanese, Burmese, Iraqis, and others. AALV is proud to be able to extend its experience in mutual assistance to newly arrived refugee groups.

Racial Justice and Equity Migrant Justice

Migrant Justice's mission is to build the voice, capacity, and power of the farmworker community and engage community partners to organize for economic justice and human rights. We gather the farmworker community to discuss and analyze shared problems and to envision collective solutions. Through this ongoing investment in leadership development, members deepen their skills in community education and organizing for long-term systemic change. From this basis our members have defined community problems as a denial of rights and dignity and have prioritized building a movement to secure these fundamental human rights to: 1) Dignified Work and Quality Housing; 2) Freedom of Movement and Access to Transportation; 3) Freedom from discrimination; 4) Access to Health Care.
