Would you like to become a U.S. Citizen? Attending a Citizenship Workshop with trained volunteers who can help you with the process is a great first step towards that goal! On Saturday December 1st, beginning at 1 pm, the IIIC will hold a Citizenship Workshop at St. Mark’s Church in Dorchester.
If you are a Legal Permanent Resident and have been so for at least five years, or are married to an American citizen and have been a Legal Permanent Resident for three years, you meet the most basic eligibility requirement for citizenship.
A workshop is a fantastic way to apply for US citizenship, particularly if you have questions, are unsure about the process or your eligibility, or have simply been putting it off for years. The IIIC offers free in-office consultations about naturalization prior to clinics, at which the application and supporting documentation (if needed) are explained. Individuals who take advantage of the expert advice available at the IIIC will arrive at the clinic fully prepared for application processing.
Benefits of U.S. Citizenship include no restrictions on travel outside the United States, the right to vote, the chance to sponsor family members to come to the U.S., and the opportunity to run for political office. The naturalization process gives immigrants full rights to enact change in their communities, benefitting fellow immigrants and our country as a whole.
Pre-registration for the clinic is mandatory. For information about the citizenship process and to register for the clinic call or email: (617) 542-7654 ext. 26 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
The clinic will take place at St. Mark’s Church which is accessible by the Shawmut Red Line T Stop, NOT Fields Corner as previously stated.
