Delivering on the Dream (DOTD) is a national network of funding collaboratives that invest critical resources to protect and defend the rights of immigrants and refugees and to help them achieve their dreams for a better life.
We host the Delivering on the Dream – Georgia collaborative and serve as co-coordinators along with Asian Americans Advancing Justice – Atlanta.
The collaboratives implement immigration relief programs, expand legal services and support for individuals and families, and build capacity within immigrant-led organizations.
Delivering on the Dream – Georgia is currently focused on two overarching priorities.
- Strong immigrant leadership in Georgia
- Sustainable and effective immigrant, BIPOC and LGTBQ-led community groups
Our funding priorities include immigrant-led, POC-led and LGTBQ-led grassroots organizations in Georgia with a budget of less than one million dollars. Since 2018, DOTD – Georgia has mobilized $512,000 to support these organizations across the state.
In order to make progress on our goals and priorities, we are supporting immigrant, BIPOC and LGTBQ-led community groups throughout Georgia.
