Black Alliance for Just Immigration (BAJI)

Black Alliance for Just Immigration (BAJI)

Black Alliance for Just Immigration (BAJI) educates and engages African American and black immigrant communities to organize and advocate for racial, social and economic justice. Local BAJI Organizing Committees in New York, Georgia, California and Florida with staff in Texas and Minnesota, build coalitions and initiate campaigns among communities to push for racial justice. At the local and regional level, BAJI provides training and technical assistance to partner organizations to develop leadership skills, works with faith communities to harness their prophetic voice, and initiates vibrant dialogues with African Americans and black immigrants to discover more about race, our diverse identities, racism, migration and globalization.

BAJI-Oakland is BAJI’s first organizing committee and has a strong history of community organizing aimed at  building power within the African Diaspora.

The Bay Area has been known for its rich legacy of self-determination struggles and cross-cultural movement building represented in many different movements that catalyzed in the Bay; the Anti-Apartheid Movement, Third World Liberation Front, the Black Power Movement, Alcatraz Island Occupation and American Indian Movement, and many more struggles. With an intergenerational organizing committee of Black Movement activists and organizers of the past and present, BAJI-Oakland draws from the rich organizing legacy in the Bay Area to grow and build current movements for racial justice and immigrant rights.

The BAJI-Oakland Organizing Committee is a volunteer-based chapter comprised of individuals who identify as Black/African descent. Everyday people and movement activists attend monthly organizing committee meetings to move forward several campaigns and projects that our committee is involved in.
