This is the motto printed on every penny, nickel, penny, and quarter in the United States: E Pluribus Unum. Its meaning—among many, one—captures the uniquely American notion that our national identity is formed around shared values and beliefs. The Republican National Committee strongly believes in this idea. That’s why we’re excited about our new minority outreach project: the Republican Civic Initiative (RCI).
The RCI is designed to help prospective Americans prepare for the civic portion of the naturalization test. More than 9.2 million Lawful Permanent Residents (LPRs) – “green card” holders who legally reside in the United States – are eligible to become US citizens. This is an opportunity for the GOP to join them and offer assistance in navigating the naturalization process. It’s a practical way to support legal immigration and help them take their place as citizens.
But this is not the only way to build relationships with minority communities. Over the past year, we have pledged millions of dollars to open more than 30 Black, Asian, Pacific American, Jewish and Native American community centers across the country, with more to come.
REPUBLICANS HAVE AN ADVANTAGE OVER DEMOCRATS IN CONFIDENCE IN EDUCATION MANAGEMENT, SURVEY SHOWS
In Doral, Florida, our Hispanic American Community Center hosted a workshop for anyone needing legal advice regarding the US immigration process. Participants asked immigration lawyers questions about their personal cases, all free of charge. Our Asian American Community Center in Coppell, TX hosted college readiness workshops, dance events, and even a henna day. Our Black Community Center in College Park, Georgia hosted a session on personal finance and financial literacy. These are all ways to establish an intentional presence in these communities and show new voters that the GOP is serious about winning their support.
There has never been more interest either. According to an April poll by Gallup, Joe Biden’s approval among black voters has dropped 20 points. We’re also seeing historic numbers of black Republicans running for Congress: 81 black GOP candidates have announced nominations for the House of Representatives in 72 congressional districts. It’s a similar story with Asian Americans being pushed away from the Democratic Party due to increased crime and anti-Asian discrimination in academia. And among Hispanics, Biden has a 60% disapproval rating. Latin Republicans like Mayra Flores of Texas are flipping neighborhoods that were deep blue just two years ago.

In fact, more than a million voters representing 43 states went from blue to red. And they don’t just come from rural areas and small towns. The most dramatic transition is occurring in suburbs where voters are abandoning Democrats, from Washington state to Florida.
Considering how out of step the Democrats’ radical agenda is with most Americans, it’s no wonder political change is afoot. As families struggle to make ends meet due to historic inflation and fear being attacked in the streets thanks to Democratic soft-crime policies, left-wing activists champion environmental extremism, demand abortion unlimited on demand and undermine law enforcement. Then the Democrats turn around and insult Latinos by comparing them to “one-of-a-kind” breakfast tacos and tell the “poor kids” they’re “just as bright and talented as the white kids.”

The Democrats built their brand on cheap identity politics. For decades they have tried to dictate which issues voters should care about and which candidates they should support based on skin color. They took minority voters for granted while doing little to win it over. But that is no longer enough. Republicans know that the challenges Americans face and the values we share transcend our differences. Conservative policies that support economic opportunity, safe communities, school choice, strong families, the sanctity of life, and religious freedom are positions that Americans of all walks of life believe in. It’s a message that resonates with more voters every day.
