The right of every person to vote is fundamental to American society and democracy. Yet, historically, immigrant communities tend to register and vote at low rates. The New York Immigrant Coalition’s civic engagement project, Immigrants Vote, is a non-partisan campaign designed to mobilize first generation and new immigrant voters to the polls.
The New York Immigration Coalition (NYIC) envisions a New York State that is stronger because all people are welcome, treated fairly, and given the chance to pursue their dreams.
The mission of the NYIC is to unite immigrants, members & allies so all New Yorkers can thrive.
