Citizenship Day – Free Legal Help

I am excited to be a part of Citizenship Day for the first time. On Saturday, April 21st, One America and the American Immigration Lawyers Association will be providing free legal advice and help filling out naturalization applications for eligible greencard holders throughout Washigton State. I and other attorneys will be traveling to Moses Lake, Washington the farthest East that I have ever been since moving to Washington State.

Check out the information provided by One America about next weeks Citizenship Day below.

We Can Help You Prepare Your Naturalization Application!

Washington New Americans will once again partner with the Washington State Chapter of the American Immigration Lawyers Association (AILA) to offer Citizenship Day events in 8 Washington cities during the 2011-2012 cycle.

Citizenship Day is a day-long workshop where volunteer immigration attorneys, paralegals, and interpreters come together to offer assistance with citizenship applications. All lawful permanent residents (“green card” holders) interested in applying for U.S. citizenship are welcome to participate. The assistance extended to the public on Citizenship Day is FREE. Resources for preparing for the naturalization interview will be provided as well.


We are working to schedule mini Citizenship Days near you! Call the hotline or email for more information.
