The Immigration Advocates Network: An Online Collaboration led by Pro Bono Net Provides Immigration-Related Resources

Thursday, June 18, 2009

Carnegie Corporation’s “Results” series usually focuses on the outcomes of grantmaking that has supported either long-term or established programs and projects. However, in an era when communication is dominated by the Internet and news about social, cultural, political and other developments can spread worldwide in the blink of an eye, we thought it would be useful to share the story of how a web site, barely a year old, has been able to harness that power of immediacy and outreach to help nonprofit organizations involved in advancing immigrant issues. This is also the story of how coalitions of organizations with a shared goal can collaborate online to provide learning and information resources that alone, they might never be able to offer. Pro Bono Net’s Immigration Advocates Network, profiled here, is still a work in progress but one with quantifiable results in the present and great promise for the future.
