Description: AAN serves the growing Diaspora with community-based services focusing in legal assistance, social services and psycho-social case management, as well as promoting cultural integration through the arts. AAN couples these programs with experienced and trained linguistic capacity in more than ten languages that span the African continent such as Amharic, Tigrinya, and Arabic to French, Wolof, Berber, Sonufu, and more. AAN is a project of Dolores Street Community Services. SOCIAL JUSTICE: The AAN is committed to the basic belief that every immigrant has dignity and protection under the law. To that degree, our agency stays active in a host of conferences, empowerment activities, and networking with other civil rights and immigrant rights groups. AAN processes legal cases ranging from naturalization, work authorization, to family unification. It has particular experience in preparing asylum applicants for the process. AAN consistently supports and advocates for just immigration policy designed to advance opportunities for immigrants and refugees. AAN is a proud member of the 13 member coalition of the San Francisco Immigrant Legal and Education Network (SFILEN). AAN actively refers clients that face challenging immigration issues to lawyers who provide pro bono and affordable legal services, especially within SFILEN.
