It is estimated that between Asian and Latino residents, approximately 81,000 individuals could become citizens by 2020. We work to engage civically ALL Latino residents and provide assistance to those that qualify for naturalization
DACA was the first step in securing the future of young Latinos. In addition to allowing them to access higher education financing and better positioning them for US Citizenship, it allowed youth to better contribute to society by accessing improved employment and business opportunities. In Georgia, over 28,000 are eligible for Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) Program.
While we wait for Congress to decide on the future of these young individuals that arrived in the U.S. before their sixteenth birthday and have no criminal record, we are focusing on supporting CIVIC ENGAGEMENT for all individuals residing in Georgia and PROVIDING FINANCIAL ASSISTANCE to those qualifying individuals ready to Naturalize through our member organizations.
Our funds are seeded by our Giving Circle investors and members. Pass-through grants funding civic engagement are given annually to member organizations across the state.
