New American Leaders Project
Organization's Own Description:
The New American Leaders Project (NALP) is the only organization in the country specifically focused on preparing immigrants and their children for civic leadership. Nearly one in five Americans is an immigrant or a child of immigrant parents. At NALP, we believe that through civic engagement and leadership, immigrants and their children can help strengthen the fabric of American democracy.
The New American Leaders Project recruits recognized individuals with a track record of civic involvement and trains them in the key skills needed for leadership from the community to the Capitol. We provide new American leaders with a non-partisan, safe space in which they can learn about the challenges and opportunities of citizenship commitment and determine how they can best contribute to making our democracy stronger and more vibrant. Our goals are threefold: to expand the number of immigrants in leadership positions, increase voter participation in immigrant communities and allow immigrant voters more opportunities to engage with leaders who reflect their unique experiences. read more
