AI Justice’s “Lucha” program provides free comprehensive immigration legal services to a wide range of vulnerable immigrants in South Florida. It provides advocacy and accompaniment to survivors as they cooperate with law enforcement during their investigation of abusers and traffickers and ensures survivors and their children receive the social services they need from community partners. Approximately 300 women and their families are supported each year. AI Justice also works closely with community partners to improve awareness of issues related to human trafficking and abuse.
Fondation CHANEL provides AI Justice with general operating support plus technical assistance on operations and communications in support of the Lucha program. This support ensures that the Lucha program team can ensure that all eligible women receive the long-term support they require to seek justice from their abusers and achieve financial stability.
