• Description

This report presents the rationale for the Fund to focus more attention on advancing the civic and political engagement of New York immigrant communities by:

  • Strengthening the organizational capacity of a limited number of key community-based and immigrant-led groups to advance citywide social and political inequity issues.
  • Supporting collaborations and new networks among immigrants, established community groups, and public institutions to improve local government accountability, access, and services.
  • Connecting immigrant groups with citywide, national, and international networks and campaigns for joint action on immigration issues, mutual support, and leadership development.
