Community Advocacy: ILRC assists immigrant groups in understanding immigration law and the democratic process in the United States, so as to enable them to advocate for better policies in immigration law, as well as in health care, community safety, and other issues that affect the immigrant community.
Leadership Training: ILRC trains immigrant leaders how to be more effective advocates for their communities.
Know Your Rights Presentations: ILRC attorneys regularly conduct "know your rights" trainings with immigrant-based organizations to inform immigrants about their rights under the immigration laws and the United States Constitution, how to protect themselves from becoming victims of immigration fraud, changes in immigration law and policy, and a host of other issues that affect the lives of immigrants.
Citizenship Events: The New Americans Campaign offers naturalization assistance events in these communities around the country: Charlotte, Dallas, Detroit, East Bay, Houston, Los Angeles, Miami, New York, Orange County, San Francisco, San Diego and San Jose. To find an event in one of these locations, visit the New Americans Campaign Citizenship Events Calendar.
