September 15, 2018 is AILA Citizenship Day

AILA's 12th Annual Citizenship Day event will take place on Saturday, September 15, 2018. Citizenship Day is a single-day nationwide event hosted by AILA chapters across the country and their local grassroots partners. Each year, Citizenship Day helps thousands of eligible legal permanent residents to prepare and apply for U.S. naturalization. According to the Department of Homeland Security, Office of Immigration Statistics, in 2014 8,880,000 legal permanent residents were eligible to naturalize.

In times fraught with negativity and fear surrounding the word "immigration", this annual event is taking on greater meaning. Citizenship workshops hosted by AILA chapters and affiliates will help create a safe and welcoming place for all immigrants and highlight the beautiful and powerful impact of immigrants in the United States.
