Power and Equality Immigration  is a nationwide organization committed to promoting and strengthening the rights of immigrants and refugees towards a better life, by advocating for inclusion, equality, and gender equity all throughout the United States. We aim to provide ground breaking legal services and resources that will empower girls and women in our community. Our work is based on several core values. We perform all aspects of our work with the highest ethical standards and assume responsibility towards them. Through leadership, our commitment is to constantly educate and develop innovative practices that evolve our strategies as needed to be able to fulfill our mission and vision. Our work begins and ends considering the interests of immigrants and refugees specifically those victims that have endured any form of domestic abuse.


We envision a society where all immigrant survivors of domestic violence and gender violence can live free from fear, violence and exploitation. Our work aims to build a world where immigrant survivors have access to the resources, information, and legal protections necessary to heal, recover, and rebuild their lives. Through our services, we strive to create a community that values and respects the human rights of all people, regardless of immigration status, race, religion, or gender.
