Voices in Action  in America (VIAA) is an organization working with women as they are released from immigration detention. We provide a roadmap to navigate American communities so that they have the tools to contribute.  The organization’s model is of two-fold holistic support: pro bono legal help and civic engagement, for example job training, English classes, and school enrollment. Our goal is to be a bridge for these women to become part of a stronger American society.


  • No matter a person’s origin or background, every person is entitled to dignity and respect.
  • Every person’s narrative has value.
  • Hearing other’s narratives help us understand the world around us and make us willing to establish bonds across personal and ideological divides.
  • Our democracy is made stronger through the bonds we establish with its other members.  
  • Government policies must be informed by the narratives of those affected by them.
