The New Americans Campaign is a groundbreaking national network of legal-service providers, faith-based organizations, businesses, foundations and community leaders that is paving a better road to citizenship. We are modernizing and streamlining access to naturalization services, so that greater numbers of legally qualified permanent residents take the critical step to becoming American citizens. We are currently driving a national, nonpartisan citizenship campaign throughout the country, focused on major cities with large numbers of citizenship-eligible residents. We currently have seventeen sites. The Open Society Foundations were a founding funder of the Campaign.
Our campaign brings together over 120 organizations across the country including the following key funders who have made an unprecedented investment in supporting aspiring citizens: Carnegie Corporation of New York; the Wallace H. Coulter Foundation; the John S. and the James L. Knight Foundation; Evelyn and Walter Haas, Jr. Fund; Grove Foundation; and the JPB Foundation.
