Our Partners

The New Americans Campaign is a diverse national network of legal-service organizations, faith-based organizations, businesses, foundations and community leaders that is paving a better road to citizenship. The Campaign began in the cities of Charlotte, Dallas, Detroit, Houston, Los Angeles, Miami, New York and San Jose. More than 3.3 million citizenship-eligible individuals reside in these eight metropolitan areas, representing more than 40 percent of the pool of citizenship-eligible legal permanent residents in the United States. The New Americans Campaign has expanded to include the California collaborations of the East Bay Area, Napa County, Orange County, San Diego County, and San Francisco; and coalitions in the states of Illinois, Maryland, Massachusetts, and Washington.

Our Impact

  • The Campaign has nearly doubled the number of naturalization applications completed in NAC sites by since the first year through over 2,100 naturalization workshops and clinics.
  • Over 136,000 citizenship applications completed since July 2011.

    Saved aspiring citizens and their families nearly $118 million in legal and application fees.
  • Over 2,100 naturalization events hosted, including info sessions, trainings and group application workshops.
  • Adopted scalable technology. MP3 players, Google Voice, and Virtual Private Network (VPN) services are being used to enhance naturalization service delivery.
  • Expanded the New American Workforce (an effort to provide naturalization assistance within corporations) which has partnered with nearly 100 businesses across the nation, ranging from hotels in Miami to American Apparel in Los Angeles.
  • Deployed CitizenshipWorks, an online tool, across the NAC in multiple settings and languages. This quarter the NAC also began to integrate the new CitizenshipWorks mobile phone app into services, and are poised to pilot CitizenshipWorks 2.0 with a New York partner.
  • 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.
