Queens lawmaker launches civic engagement initiative for new Americans

The Task Force on New American chair, Assemblywoman Catalina Cruz, has launched a series of civic engagement and educational town hall meetings.

The “Community for All” initiative includes monthly webinars aimed at understanding the function of government and will encourage new Americans to become civically engaged. The first-of-its-kind program will teach participants the different roles government entities and officials play at the various levels of government, the fundamentals of the redistricting process, ranked-choice voting, and civic engagement opportunities beyond the ballot box, as well as an overview of the U.S. naturalization process.
