National Partnership for New Americans is officially launching Ready to Stay, a coalition of of 18 national organizations with reach across all 50 states will launch the Ready To Stay campaign, a national effort to help immigrants navigate and access legal services. For the estimated 11 million undocumented immigrants in the United States, there are already various forms of temporary protections and very limited paths to citizenship, including Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA), Temporary Protected Status (TPS) for certain countries, and the Liberian Refugee Immigration Fairness (LRIF) program. With Congress and the White House working towards large-scale citizenship and legalization measures, this campaign is creating the infrastructure to help millions gain protection and enroll in programs that will lead to eventual citizenship.

The launch kicks off a series of events to inform impacted community members on how to navigate immigration programs and increase the legal capacities of immigrant-serving organizations across the country. Speakers include:

– Angelica Salas, executive director, Coalition for Humane Immigrant Rights (CHIRLA)

– Bishop Jaime Soto, Diocese of Sacramento, Catholic Legal Immigration Network, Inc. (CLINIC) board chair

– Cirenio Cervantes, Faith in Action, congregation organizer with Faith In Florida

– Daniela Alulema, director of programs, Center for Migration Studies (CMS)

– Abraham Paulos, Deputy Director of the Black Alliance for Just Immigration (BAJI)

– Rodrigo Camarena, executive director, Immigrant Advocates Network (IAN)

– Nicole Melaku, executive director, National Partnership for New Americans (NPNA), moderator
