Building an Americanization Movement for the Twenty-first Century – A Report to the President of the United States from the Task Force on New Americans, December 2008

  • “This report is the culmination of more than two years of research into immigrant integration efforts across all sectors of society in the United States. The report provides an overview of successful integration initiatives observed in many sectors and prescribes recommendations to launch a coordinated national campaign — similar to past Americanization movements — to promote the assimilation of immigrants into American civic culture. The recommendations presented for your consideration are actions that all sectors of society can undertake under a federal call to action. To renew an Americanization movement, state and local governments, community and faith-based organizations, businesses, adult educators, libraries, civic organizations, and the philanthropic sector must be partners to this strategy.”
