About English First
English First is a national, non-profit grassroots lobbying organization founded in 1986. Our goals are simple:
•Make English America's official language.
•Give every child the chance to learn English.
•Eliminate costly and ineffective multilingual policies.
It is impossible to fully live the American dream without a working knowledge of English both in reading and speaking.
English First has been carrying the torch for the English Language for more than 25 years. Over 150,000 concerned Americans have joined English First. They believe this nation of immigrants must be able to talk to each other. They believe that the English language unites America. They are tired of seeing the government use their tax money to divide Americans on the basis of language or ancestry.
