National Immigrant Empowerment Project
About This Recording
The Catholic Legal Immigration Network, Inc. announces the launch of the National Immigrant Empowerment Project, known as NIEP. CLINIC seeks to fund eight affiliates in rural areas for this four-year project through a competitive request for proposals.
The NIEP will:
- Mobilize low-income immigrant communities and their supporters to create social change based on local needs
- Identify and train additional immigrant leaders to develop existing but underutilized infrastructure in support of integration efforts
- Provide education and promote understanding about poverty and its root causes
- Empower immigrants living in poverty to participate in decisions that affect their lives, families and communities.
