Welcoming America has already developed national reach, and will continue to grow until it has truly rekindled the American dream, coast to coast.
Currently, nineteen campaigns – most of them statewide – are active across the country. This is up from just 7 campaigns in 2009. The demand for this dynamic new approach to addressing rapid immigration growth has proven quite high in communities across the country, and we anticipate significant growth in the number of affiliates over the next few years.
The following three factors will be considered in the selection of affiliates for future campaigns:
1.) The capacity of the local organization(s) to build a successful, sustainable campaign with the active involvement of multiple sectors within the target community.
2.) The capacity of the local organization(s) to replicate the campaign in neighboring towns and cities.
3.) The severity of the current climate for immigrants in that area.
