As we work toward a fairer immigration process that is worthy of this country’s highest ideals, it is clear that we are still not hearing the full story (and facts) about who immigrants are and how reform would affect their lives, and our country as a whole. As a small step toward trying to put these facts at people’s fingertips, The Haas Jr. Fund (one of the backers of the New Americans Campaign) as created a quiz to help people learn about who the immigrant population is and the many ways they contribute to  our economy, society and communities.

Would you please share the quiz with your networks and via social media to help educate folks that immigration is an issue that touches all of our lives? The digital link is here: www.haasjr.org/immigration-quiz.

Below are some suggested tweets and Facebook posts you can use to help spread the quiz.

Thank you.

Our Impact

  • The Campaign has completed over 3,700 naturalization workshops and clinics.
  • Over 250,000 citizenship applications completed since July 2011.

    Saved aspiring citizens and their families over $206million in legal and application fees.
  • Adopted scalable technology. MP3 players, Google Voice, and Virtual Private Network (VPN) services are being used to enhance naturalization service delivery.
  • Expanded New American Workforce (an effort to provide naturalization assistance within corporations) which has partnered with over 100 businesses across the nation, ranging from hotels in Miami to American Apparel in Los Angeles.
  • Deployed Citizenshipworks, an online tool, across the Campaign in multiple settings and languages. A newly redesigned platform guides applicants through through their citizenship application from start to finish and connects applicants to legal help at partnering non-profits.
  • Were instrumental in inspiring the US Citizenship and Immigration Service to support the Citizenship Corners initiative.
  • Created innovative partnerships with public libraries, school districts, universities, social service agencies, and employers, all of which yield not only greater numbers of applicants but also greater awareness of the naturalization process.
  • Deployed a large-scale volunteer recruitment program through an e-learning course.

    Reached diverse communities. Local partners consistently outreach and provide culturally competent and language-appropriate services.
