Welcome To New Americans Initiative
We are committed to assisting Kentuckiana’s immigrant population through the naturalization process and informing the community on current issues in immigration.
WHO WE ARE
We are a non-profit organization founded in 2015 by Nima Kulkarni, an immigration attorney in Louisville, Kentucky, whose own family immigrated to the United States when she was young.
WHAT WE DO
We educate the community and build awareness of immigrant related issues by facilitating engagement between our area's foreign-born population and the broader community, while keeping eligible immigrants informed of policies and changes to current immigration laws.
“I serve the community because I want to help people. I have been very fortunate in the opportunities that have been given to me and want to share that with others. I am devoted to immigrants and immigrants’ rights and feel that they should be involved and engaged members of our community and that we should all benefit and learn from each other. I strive to achieve that goal as often as I can.”
Nima Kulkarni, Founder and President of New Americans Initiative
