C4C is a growing network of currently 60 cities and counties that is chaired by New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio, Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel, and Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti, with coordination run by the National Partnership for New Americans and the Center for Popular Democracy. Citi Community Development is the founding corporate partner who first invested in C4C in 2014.
Cities and counties are uniquely situated to encourage their immigrant constituents to apply for citizenship both by offering material support to existing naturalization programs, and by promoting naturalization in the media and through community outreach.
C4C facilitates collaboration between participating cities and counties to provide: • Technical support and policy advice• Assistance with organizing strategies• Best practices from other cities and counties• Communications and press strategy support• Planning and implementing C4C events and activities
