This introductory chapter explains how the book's analysis of immigrant-serving nonprofits successfully navigated advocacy constraints to influence the local governance of immigrant rights and integration. It draws on case studies in three areas of immigrant rights policies—language access, labor rights, and municipal ID cards—in San Francisco to present a tripartite model of advocacy strategies used by nonprofits to propose, enact, and implement immigrant-friendly policies. The first strategy is one of administrative advocacy; the second deals with cross-sectoral and cross-organizational collaborations; and finally, nonprofits use strategic issue framing. Through use of this tripartite strategy, immigrant-serving nonprofits in San Francisco help create new socioeconomic and political rights for disadvantaged immigrants.
