Immigrant Legal Resource Center

The Immigrant Legal Resource Center (ILRC) is a national nonprofit resource center that provides immigration legal trainings, technical assistance, and educational materials, and engages in advocacy and immigrant civic engagement to advance immigrant rights.

Why We Invested

The Immigrant Legal Resource Center (ILRC) provides critical support to organizations helping immigrants navigate the naturalization process. They provide trainings and technical assistance, publish the top practitioner’s guide, Naturalization and U.S. Citizenship: The Essential Legal Guide, and engage in federal and local advocacy. Through the national New Americans Campaign, the ILRC also develops and disseminates best practices in providing access to naturalization services.

Eligible individuals who become citizens make significant civic and economic contributions to the country, and Democracy Fund is proud to support the Immigrant Legal Resource Center’s New Americans Campaign to ensure that these individuals have the support they need to become a citizen.
