My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for American Immigration Council, Washington, DC, USA
As a former trustee of the Council from 2000-2006, I've seen it grow over the years to become one of the most respected policy think tanks on immigration, as well as a valuable resource for educators and litigators. The Council continues to contribute to the public debate on immigration through its research and policy advocacy.
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
being able to talk knowledgeably about federal immigration policy in graduate school urban policy classes and wider audiences.
If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
focus more on a communications strategy, which the Council has begun to do.
