Citizenship Day is an annual event across the country during September, Citizenship Month.

Citizenship Day here in Atlanta is a partnership between the Georgia-Alabama American Immigration Lawyers Association (AILA), the Georgia Association of Latino Elected Officials (GALEO), the Latin American Association (LAA) and the New Americans Campaign.

At this free naturalization workshop, you will be helping green card holders apply for U.S. citizenship. Green card holders will be screened for eligibility, given one-on-one assistance in completing their application forms and fee waivers, provided with individual legal review by an attorney, and given a clear list of next steps.

The benefits of citizenship include the right to vote and run for office, protection from deportation, increased ability to petition for family members, access to higher-paying jobs, and more! Obstacles to citizenship include the complex process and high cost of applying. By volunteering at this workshop, you are helping expand access to U.S. citizenship for eligible immigrants! Thank you so much for your time!
