Advancing the Civic and Political Participation of New York City's Immigrant Communities

Advancing the Civic and Political Participation of Immigrant Communities presents the rationale for the Rockefeller Brothers 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; and connecting immigrant groups with citywide, national, and international networks and campaigns for joint action on immigration issues, mutual support, and leadership development.
