The New Americans Campaign is a groundbreaking, nonpartisan 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 lawfully 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 eighteen sites.
Our campaign brings together over 140 organizations across the country including the following key funders who have made an unprecedented investment in supporting aspiring citizens: The California Wellness Foundation; the Carnegie Corporation of New York; the Wallace H. Coulter Foundation; the Evelyn and Walter Haas, Jr. Fund; the Grove Foundation; and the JPB Foundation. The the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation and the Open Society Foundations were founding funders of the Campaign. Click on the graphic above for more information about the Campaign.
