Welcome to The National Organization of


The National Organization of Portuguese-Americans (NOPA) is a national non-profit, tax exempt organization that supports and works with communities and organizations to advocate for and empower Portuguese-Americans.


NOPA is proud to report that our advocacy efforts to reinstate the Congressional Portuguese American Caucus have been successful. Congressmen Cardoza (CA-18) and Costa (CA-20) are now official co-chairs of the Congressional Portuguese-American Caucus for the 112th Congress (2011-2012). We are extremely thankful to the Congressman for their commitment and to their staff for their efforts to officially reinstate the Caucus after eight years of being defunct.
