Mark your calendars! Next weekend, 7/27-28, there are going to be TWO (2) citizenship fairs! Volunteer to help your neighbors become our newest Americans

Detail from antique engraved Victorian illustration of Statue of Liberty at night, 1878.

Someday, someone you’ve helped will be in a video like this…

…which they will proudly show their kids and grandkids and retell the story of how they became an American. As completely 100% an American as anybody else.

Ronald Reagan, in his surprising last speech as president, (watch it here) reminded his listeners that immigration is “the great life force of each generation of new Americans…”  (Quick timeline of the history of immigration here.)

Get trained to help!

We love to have bilingual people but English-only volunteers are also most welcome. Volunteers do not need to be citizens, nor adults. Interested teens make great volunteers!
