Immigration & Civics Opportunities
A Path to Citizenship
Since 2014 LULAC has served over 12,000 law-abiding immigrants in Arizona, California, Connecticut, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Maryland, New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania, and Texas through our Hispanic Immigration Integration Program (HIIP). By bringing naturalization information and resources to local communities through English, United States history, and Civics courses for immigrants, LULAC has served over 22,000 people, trained and screened over 12,000 students for citizenship exams, aided in DACA, and immigration applications. With LULAC’s help, 90% of eligible program participants were on track to complete the Naturalization process in becoming a United States Citizen.
LULAC encourages civic learning by building a strong foundation upon which immigrants can exercise their rights and responsibilities in becoming part of a Democracy.
For generations, the Hispanic community has embodied a fearless spirit, by staying true to the belief that nothing great ever happens without taking a chance. Founded on the ideas that continue to inspire our community, LULAC has decided to turn your beliefs into a reality. No matter how big or small the vision may be, we believe it’s “A Shot Worth Taking.”
LULAC has had a long history of taking chances in order to challenge the status quo and create opportunities for the Hispanic community. As LULAC celebrates its 91st anniversary, it seems only natural to team up for A Fair Shot™ in creating a special opportunity to celebrate diversity, push boundaries, and inspire nuestra gente to break traditions.
In supporting immigrant communities and essential workers during this time, LULAC will be extending resources for those seeking better opportunities. A Fair Shot aims to empower aspiring immigrants to a path towards citizenship to create better opportunities for themselves and their families.
Coming to LULAC 2021
LULAC’s motivated grassroots base will implement A Fair Shot programming in emerging Latino communities for Legal Permanent Residents (LPR) through outreach/awareness campaigns, History, civics, and ESL classes; Interview preparation, and N-400 filing assistance.
