NFC sponsors fora on various issues in an effort to promote and raise awareness regarding educational, human rights, and humanitarian issues concerning Nicaraguans. Emphasis is placed on providing programs that reach issues of interest to the diverse NFC network and on educating the public on subjects useful to individuals and beneficial to the community.

NFC also coordinates important initiatives to mobilize and influence the Nicaraguan community in the U.S. Capitol by  facilitating actions between the diaspora and the U.S. Government, the OAS, foreign embassies, international organizations and human rights groups and supporting and assisting civic leaders and human right activists visiting the U.S.

For each project, NFC recruits the participation of technical and education, human rights, and humanitarian experts, and other qualified and relevant individuals, including community and business leaders.
