NPNA’s members provide large-scale services—from DACA (Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals) application processing to voter registration to health care enrollment—for their communities, and they combine service delivery with sophisticated organising tactics to advance local and state policy. NPNA exists to leverage the collective power and expertise of its member organisations for a national strategy. It holds a unique position in the immigrant rights movement as the foremost institution comprised of and led by immigrant constituencies and has been a key player in shaping local, regional, and national policy and politics impacting immigrant communities.
