That's our philosophy and approach at Advancing Justice - Atlanta. We meet with people and small groups one by one, door to door, most often engaging Asian immigrants and refugees who have never registered or voted in America. When more people are engaged in civic life, the common good is strengthened. There is an acute need for more inclusive policies and diversified political dialogue in the Deep South where immigrants and refugees are an emerging, high-growth demographic. We focus on three main issues: immigration, education, and voting rights. Advancing Justice-Atlanta has developed series of in-language Know Your Rights fact sheets for the community.

Raksha works towards healing, empowerment, and justice for survivors of violence. Guided by values of community collaboration, diversity in leadership, and the dignity and worth of every individual, Raksha strives to empower and serve the South Asian community. Though we primarily serve the South Asian community, we provide services to all those who face similar barriers to justice, regardless of ability, country of origin, race, religion, caste, socioeconomic status, gender identity, age, immigration status, or sexual orientation. Raksha, meaning protection, is a local non profit serving the South Asian community since Raksha's mission is to promote a stronger and healthier South Asian community through confidential support services, education, and advocacy. Raksha works to ensure South Asian and other immigrant survivors have equal access to their legal rights, services, safety, and their well being.
