Mission Statement

Established in 1979, the National Immigration Law Center (NILC) is the primary organization in the U.S. exclusively dedicated to defending and advancing the rights and opportunities of low-income immigrants and their families. NILC believes that all people who live in the U.S.—regardless of their race, gender, immigration and/or economic status—should have the opportunity to achieve their full human potential. NILC has been at the forefront of many of the country’s greatest challenges when it comes to immigration issues, and plays a major leadership role in addressing the real-life impact of polices that affect the ability of low-income immigrants to prosper and thrive.

?

GuideStar worked with BoardSource, the national leader in nonprofit board leadership and governance, to create this section, which enables organizations and donors to transparently share information about essential board leadership practices.

Board Orientation & Education ?
Why does this matter? Without clarity around their responsibilities and expectations, board members are not positioned to succeed. They may find themselves challenged to fulfill their governance responsibilities or frustrated by the expectations that the organization has set for them. BoardSource recommends that every new board member participate in a formal orientation process, and that all board members sign a pledge or agreement committing to their board service and to all of the responsibilities and expectations that come with service. Ideally, board members also should participate in a formal governance training program prior to serving on a board.

Does the board conduct a formal orientation for new board members and require all board members to sign a written agreement regarding their roles, responsibilities, and expectations?
Yes
CEO Oversight ?
Why does this matter? Oversight and management of the chief executive is one of the board’s most important legal responsibilities. The CEO or executive director is the board's single employee, and - just like any other employer/employee relationship - regular and written assessment is critical to ensuring that the chief executive and board are communicating openly about goals and performance. BoardSource recommends that boards conduct formal, written reviews of their chief executives on an annual basis, which should include an in-person discussion with the chief executive and distribution of the written evaluation to the full board.

Has the board conducted a formal, written assessment of the chief executive within the past year?
Yes
Ethics & Transparency ?
Why does this matter? A commitment to handling conflicts of interests is essential to creating an organizational culture of transparency. Boards should create and follow a policy for identifying and handling conflicts of interest, whether real or perceived. BoardSource recommends that organizations review the conflict-of-interest statement and require signed disclosures from all board members and senior staff on an annual basis.

Have the board and senior staff reviewed the conflict-of-interest policy and completed and signed disclosure statements within the past year?
No
Board Composition ?
Why does this matter? The best boards are composed of individuals who bring a variety of skills, perspectives, backgrounds, and resources to tackle the complex and strategic challenges confronting their organizations. BoardSource recommends that boards commit to diversity and inclusion by establishing written policies and practices, which include strategic and intentional recruitment of diverse board members, continual commitment to inclusivity, and equal access to board leadership opportunities.

Does the board ensure an inclusive board member recruitment process that results in diversity of thought and leadership?
Yes
Board Performance ?
Why does this matter? Boards need to regularly assess their own performance. Doing so ensures that they are being intentional about how they govern their organization, which is a critical component of effective board leadership. BoardSource recommends that a board conduct a self-assessment of its performance a minimum of once every three years to ensure that it is staying on track with its roles and responsibilities.

Has the board conducted a formal, written self-assessment of its performance within the past three years?
No

This section is not a requirement for any of the Exchange participation levels - Bronze, Silver, or Gold. Instead, it is a voluntary questionnaire that empowers organizations to share information on the demographics of who works in and leads organizations. To protect the identity of individuals, we do not display sexual orientation or disability information for organizations with fewer than 15 staff.

Any values displayed in this section are percentages of the total number of individuals in each category (e.g. 20% of all Board members for X organization are female).

Organization's Comments/Insights on Demographic Profile

Over the last several years, NILC has made significant progress in increasing the diversity of its staff at all levels. NILC continues to perfect its recruitment tactics to ensure that a diverse pool of applicants is drawn from for its attorney and policy analyst positions in particular. NILC is proud to now have five formerly undocumented individuals as members of its legal and policy departments. A majority of NILC staff are people of color, including over half of staff members fulfilling professional or management work duties. Many of NILC’s staff are either immigrants, the children of immigrants, have immigrant family members, or otherwise have close linkages to an immigrant history. A number of staff also come from low-income backgrounds, which provides NILC with an important vantage point into the particular needs of low-income immigrant families. Diversity remains a core priority in efforts to expand NILC’s board of directors. This includes ensuring that the board is balanced in terms of ethnicity/race, gender, and sexual orientation, but also in terms of skills, leadership capacities, connections, and age.

Program Description:

We educate advocates and policymakers about the need for just and humane federal immigration policies that are in line with the nation’s core values. Our goal is to promote the full integration of all immigrants and their families into U.S. society. Pathways to citizenship, relief from deportation, and work authorization for undocumented immigrants are crucial to our work in this arena. We also identify administrative barriers to legal status that low-income immigrants face, and advocate with federal government agencies to lower or eliminate those barriers.

Program Description:

All low-income individuals should have the means to contribute fully to their families’ well-being, to their communities, and to the nation’s economy overall. But low-income immigrants often don’t have access to the programs and services that citizens rely on in hard times. We work to reduce the barriers that low-income immigrants face in seeking out the public and private services they need to pursue healthy lives and economic opportunities. This includes increasing their access to affordable and comprehensive health care, and developing creative solutions to address the needs of undocumented individuals who remain uninsured. We also advocate for immigrants’ access to effective anti-poverty tools, such as government tax credits.

Program Description:

Low-income immigrants are highly vulnerable to workplace exploitation, and to deportation due to workplace investigations by immigration authorities. In recent years, these and other enforcement programs have torn apart millions of families. We challenge unjust immigration enforcement policies that encourage discrimination and undermine fundamental civil and human rights. This includes advocacy to reduce the number of low-income immigrants swept into in the federal deportation system through worksite enforcement actions. We also challenge local law enforcement practices that target individuals in low-income immigrant communities based on their race or ethnicity, and promote the need for state laws and policies that ensure the safety and integration of low-income immigrants.

Program Description:

Because education opens the gateway to higher paying jobs and improved life opportunities, we work with a wide range of advocates to increase low-income immigrants’ access to quality education and training. This includes addressing eligibility and financial barriers to higher education that immigrant students uniquely face. We also collaborate with a wide range of groups to disseminate resources that help low-income children in immigrant families enroll safely in primary and secondary schools. And we’re exploring opportunities to increase low-income immigrants’ access to other training and education programs that can help them meet requirements for securing immigration relief and ensure their families’ economic security.
