The Centre for American Unity describes itself as "a national non-profit educational organization dedicated to preserving our historical unity as Americans into the 21st Century."

The Center conducts research and monitors developments on a broad range of economic, domestic, defense, and foreign policy issues related to the American nation-state. The Center is concerned with what has been called the National Question - whether the United States can survive as a nation-state, the political expression of a distinct American people, in the face of these emerging threats: mass immigration, multiculturalism, multilingualism, and affirmative action.[1]
The Center For American Unity was set up by Peter Brimelow, a British-born journalist who has been highlighting concerns about immigration to the US since publishing a controversial book, Alien Nation: Common Sense About America's Immigration Disaster, in 1995.[2]

VDARE Website

The Guardian reported in 2005 that the American anti-immigration forum VDARE was affiliated to the Center. VDARE had sparked controvery in Britain because of contributions by Times journalist Anthony Browne.[3]

VDARE's website now states:

VDARE.COM is no longer associated with the Center For American Unity, which plans to focus on litigation. We are grateful for their past help and wish them well in future. Our sponsor is now the VDARE Foundation, a 501(c)(3) charity.[4]
