We believe that everyone should become a citizen and actively participate in the social, political and economic fabric of the nation. We are carrying out a multifaceted campaign this Summer of 2017 that reflects these values. Join us and steer history in the direction of justice.
Following the 22 day White House action to defend DACA and TPS, KRC is launching a new stage in the push for the hopes and dreams of millions of immigrant young people and their families. Please join us as we raise awareness in communities throughout Orange County and pressure Congressmember Mimi Walters and others to indicate interest in supporting the DREAM Act!
We are distributing information for immigrants to defend their basic rights when meeting immigration officials, both in pamphlet format and as smartphone app, and operating a 24/7 hotline for immigrants to call when detained by immigration to receive basic information and be referred to immigration attorneys.
Sign our petition urging Congress and the President to make DACA permanent and support the DREAM Act!
Adoptee Citizenship Act
Of the 300,000 children adopted to U.S. parents for almost a century, 12% do not have citizenship due to neglect from their parents and relevant departments. Many of them are adoptees from Korea. America must honor its promise and give back citizenship to the adoptees. The Adoptee Citizenship Act of 2017 seeks to address this issue. Please sign a petition to move the bill in Congress.
Citizenship and Voter Registration
We are building upon twenty years of civic engagement work this year by continuing to help over 5,000 permanent resident immigrants apply for citizenship (directly and by addressing questions) and register students and new citizens to vote, through individual appointments, traditional workshops as well as cutting edge, text-mediated systems. We plan to purchase a van to ensure we are providing service to more areas where help is needed.
