U.S. Association for International Migration

The U.S. Association for International Migration (USAIM) is the nonprofit partner organization of the International Organization for Migration (IOM) in the United States. As a registered 501(c)(3) non-profit organization USAIM seeks to empower migrants. Through outreach, education, and fundraising USAIM aims to raise awareness about the reality of migration while encouraging positive action and supporting IOM programs. USAIM's ultimate goal is to ensure that people on the move (whether forced or by choice) are healthy and safe, even when they do not have the security of a stable home.  We are committed to the principle that humane and orderly migration benefits migrants and society.

International Organization for Migration
