About

The Alliance for Citizenship is a broad coalition of national, regional, and local organizations founded in early 2013 to catalyze and support the movement for fair and humane immigration reform, including a path to citizenship. A4C is led by a Working Group of seven partner organizations: AFL-CIO, America’s Voice, Center for American Progress, Center for Community Change/Fair Immigration Reform Movement, National Council of La Raza, National Immigration Law Center, and the Service Employees International Union/Mi Familia Vota. 

A Coordinating Committee, which includes dozens of organizations representing a diversity of perspectives and constituencies, develops and coordinates strategies for organizing the field and communicating A4C’s message; shares information; and acts as a consensus-building body to forge broad agreement at key moments.
