About Us

In 1942, a group of students at the University of Chicago founded the Congress of Racial Equality (CORE) to fight for the rights and interests of minorities and the economically underprivileged. In recent years, it has become a powerful force in helping immigrants achieve American Citizenship. More than 70 years later, CORE continues to fight for the rights of all people in America.


The Focus

Join America was created to help immigrants on the journey to becoming citizens and to fully assimilate into the American society. The organization serves as a critical gateway for the Las Vegas area's growing and increasingly diverse immigrant and refugee population. Join America provides an ideal venue by offering Civics and English language instructions, immigration and social support services. This is crucial not only for the immigrants' personal success, but for the economic and cultural vibrancy of Las Vegas communities and the country as well.
