ActionNYC Toolkit

In December 2015, New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio announced the creation of ActionNYC, a citywide community-based immigration legal services initiative designed to provide immigrant New Yorkers with immigration legal services in the neighborhoods where they live and in the languages that they speak. In doing so, Mayor de Blasio affirmed his commitment to the deep belief that the well-being of the city depends on the well-being of its immigrant residents.

This Cities for Action toolkit represents some of New York City’s most important learnings about designing and launching a program like ActionNYC that provides immigrants with trusted, high-quality, and community-based immigration-related services. Our hope is that with this resource, other cities and towns across the nation will be able to conceptualize and implement similar programs to deliver community-based immigration legal services at scale.
