IRC Co-Hosts Free Citizenship Workshop on March 24th
The International Rescue Committee (IRC) in LA, in collaboration with NALEO (the National Association of Latino Elected and Appointed Officials) and other local organizations, will be hosting a citizenship workshop on Saturday, March 24, 2012. The workshop will help guide those seeking U.S. citizenship through the naturalization process. The IRC, NALEO, and other service providers participating in the workshop anticipate serving over 300 individuals that day alone. IRC staff and trained volunteers will help file fee waiver applications for those who qualify, which will enable low-income immigrants to apply for citizenship at no cost.
The event will take place at Robert F. Kennedy Community Schools from 9am-12pm. The school is located at 701 South Catalina Street, Los Angeles, CA 90005. Free parking will be available at 8th street and Catalina.
Participants are expected to bring documents to the workshop. The list can be found on the workshop flyer (see below). The IRC is a Board of Immigration Appeals accredited agency, authorized to provide immigration assistance to those in need.
