Representation & Advocacy
MIA provides free immigration and civil legal services to victims of violent crime, with a focus on domestic violence and sexual assault. MIA has provided holistic legal representation to immigrant survivors since 2016.
Who We Fight For
Survivors’ Project clients include immigrants abused by U.S. citizen family members, asylum seekers fleeing gender-based persecution in their home countries, and people targeted for violent crime in the U.S. due to their vulnerability. MIA represents clients seeking orders of protection, divorce, child support, and other essential civil legal services.
The Path to Freedom & Justice
Immigration law provides pathways to lawful status for immigrants who have been victims of certain violent crimes in the U.S., such as domestic violence, rape, felony assault, and human trafficking. MIA assists our clients in seeking this relief so they can safely heal from their trauma in the U.S. without fear of deportation.

MIA accepts referrals for Memphis-area victims of domestic violence, sexual assault, human trafficking, stalking, and similar crimes who contact us directly for services. Individuals needing both an immigration and civil legal service are prioritized for assistance. Please call our intake line at (901) 466-8819 or contact us by email for assistance in English or Spanish. We can access interpretation in any language upon request.
