ABOUT ALLIANCE SAN DIEGO
Alliance San Diego is a nonprofit community empowerment organization that builds coalitions and mobilizes resources to advance justice and social change. As part of that effort, we are working with immigrant communities to expand knowledge of and access to legal and advocacy resources to protect and support immigrant families. There are an estimated 750,000 immigrants in San Diego. Roughly one third (250,000) are undocumented. Of those, an estimated 25,000 are eligible for Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA).
Alliance and its partners are assisting immigrant families by organizing free large group application workshops for young undocumented immigrants to apply for DACA. We are also organizing naturalization workshops for some of the 150,000 immigrants who already have their permanent resident status and who are now eligible to become citizens. By becoming citizens, they can better protect their families against deportation.
Alliance is looking for a part-time outreach coordinator to reach out to the immigrant community to share information about the importance of applying for DACA and naturalization and the availability of free assistance with pro bono attorneys. The outreach coordinator will also share information about how to protect against fraud and work with Alliance staff to provide updates on immigration reform.
