Welcome to the
Alabama Institute for Social Justice

The Alabama Institute for Social Justice (AISJ) is a nonprofit organization that advocates for social justice and racial reconciliation across the state of Alabama. We work to remove barriers that limit and/or undermine the economic well-being of women and people of color through leadership development and training, advocacy and public policy, and racial healing and reconciliation.


What We Offer


Advocacy
& Outreach

Having an extensive history in advocacy and outreach on behalf of low-income communities, AISJ understands the important value of being a voice for the voiceless.


Training & Leadership Development

A critical component of AISJ’s mission includes serving as a central hub for leadership development and training in the state.


Public Policy & Justice Pioneering

The looming threat of an ever-changing legislative environment, coupled with a shifting political climate, creates an ongoing need for AISJ to continue forward-thinking, active advocacy of public policy reform.
