Ready to Stay Partner Interest Form
Ready to Stay is a national coalition working to build field capacities and coordination for effective implementation of a large-scale immigration legalization program. Built by organizations who bring legal, field and organizing expertise, Ready to Stay aims to serve as a value-add to the field by centralizing the creation and curation of legal resources, community education tools, capacity building training opportunities, and non-duplicative administrative advocacy that will increase coordination and resources for implementation efforts.
