Led by the Immigrant Legal Resource Center, the New Americans Campaign is a diverse nonpartisan national network of respected immigration organizations, legal services providers, faith-based organizations, immigrant rights groups, foundations and community leaders. The Campaign transforms the way aspiring citizens navigate the path to becoming new Americans. It is committed to connecting lawful permanent residents (LPRs) to trusted legal assistance and critical information that simplifies the naturalization process.
There are nearly 9 million LPRs eligible for citizenship, but only 10 percent naturalize each year. The Campaign aims to increase the number of LPRs who apply for citizenship through our network of partners that provide application assistance for free or at minimal cost. Currently, our partners are located in over 20 metropolitan areas across the U.S. and comprise more than 170 organizations, as well as the following current and original funders who have made significant investments in support of aspiring citizens: the Carnegie Corporation of New York, the Wallace H. Coulter Foundation, the Grove Foundation, the Evelyn and Walter Haas, Jr. Fund, the JPB Foundation, the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation, and the Open Society Foundations.
