*This program is hosted by our partner, Grantmakers Concerned with Immigrants and Refugees (GCIR), who has extended an invitation to PNY members.*
Approximately 45 million foreign-born individuals from all over the world reside in the United States, more than in any other country, comprising nearly 14 percent of the U.S. population.
A 2021 poll from the Cato Institute shows 72 percent of respondents consider immigration to be good for the nation. Yet, many people continue to have complicated and conflicting opinions on the issue, often based on a lack of understanding of how the immigration system operates and exacerbated by disinformation campaigns.
Research helps identify what inspires people to act, while cultural interventions and organizing affect perceptions and how we relate to one another. Related program: “Narrative Change: Inspiring a Vision and Protecting the Freedoms to Move and Stay”.
