Citizenship Drive to Help Immigrants
Friday, May 18, 2012
A citizenship drive will be held by the City of Oakley on the weekend of May 18 in order to help immigrants apply for U.S. citizenship.
The drive will help develop a sense of community for new Americans and motivate them to participate further in their communities.
During the drive, volunteers will assist eligible U.S. permanent residents to complete the required naturalization application. To be qualified for the application, the permanent residents must be legal permanent residents for at least five years, or three years if they are married to a U.S. citizen. They should also demonstrate good moral conduct.
Immigration attorneys from the International Institute of the Bay Area (IIBA) and Contra Costa Bar Association will also participate in the drive and help to verify all applications. A presentation at the drive will provide U.S. immigrants joining in the program with benefits of citizenship, including the right to vote. Civics classes of Liberty Union High School District's adult education program and language classes of IIBA are available for participants to register after finishing the naturalization application.
Co-organizer of the event is the Contra Costa Interfaith Supporting Community Organization.
