KALW Interview: Melissa Rodgers on the impact of the New Americans Campaign
In an exclusive interview with KALW, our very own Melissa Rodgers, Project Director for the New Americans Campaign, sat down with Hana Baba for a conversation on citizenship.
Melissa highlights the importance of green-card holders on becoming new Americans, and explains how our nation-wide initiative is driving the conversation of citizenship across the country.
“RODGERS: We have helped over 100,000 people apply for citizenship. By helping people with fee waivers, we’ve saved communities over $89 million. I think it’s really important for people who are living in this country to have the right to fully belong, and that’s what citizenship gives you. It’s a right of belonging that can’t be taken away.
