At the Florida Immigrant Coalition, we work for the full integration of immigrants in the social, cultural, economic and political spheres of our state and our country. But it is not a secret that the path to citizenship and immigrant integration is not available, easy or affordable for many.
Through our Florida New Americans program, our goal is to offer information, education and direct services to immigrants at several steps of the way:
- Undocumented immigrants: information and legal assistance for undocumented immigrants who are eligible for temporary relief from deportation and work permits through DAPA & DACA
- Legal Permanent Residents: information and legal assistance to apply for citizenship
- Citizens and voters: voter registration, vote by mail and information about upcoming elections and voting rights
Our final goal is to advance immigrant rights and create active citizenship among New Americans in order to achieve a vibrant, just, and welcoming democracy for all.
