Someday, someone you’ve helped will be in a video like this…
…which they will proudly show their kids and grandkids and retell their origin 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.)

Citizenship: If you know someone who’s had their permanent residency card (green card) for 5 years, or for 3 years if they’re married to a U.S. citizen, tell them to get their citizenship application done for free, with trained volunteers and volunteer lawyers at either fair on the flyer below. Saturday 7/27 and Sunday 7/28.
Citizenship, DACA and Green Card Renewals: Tell them to get their citizenship, DACA and green card renewal applications done for free, with trained volunteers and volunteer lawyers at Swap Meet Justice on Sunday 7/28. (See flyer below for details)
Citizenship for those who can’t speak English well: An applicant can apply for citizenship in their own language if:
- If the applicant is 50 or older, and has had their green card for 20 years or more.
- If the applicant is 55 or older, and has had their green card for 15 years or more.
- If the applicant is 65 or older, and has had their green card for 20 years or more.
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!
