Saturday, October 14, DUSA hosted another Free Citizenship Assistance Workshop. It will be the 17th workshop DUSA has conducted with the help of organizations like Carnegie, the New Americans Campaign, and CUNY Citizenship Now. Our mission, as you may know, is to empower more than one-third of New York’s population who is foreign-born and aspire to be United States citizens. Unfortunately, most legal permanent residents do not inquire about the naturalization process due to limited access to resources.
Creating a pathway to citizenship is a direct injection of new voters into the political system. We created a model and path to ensure individuals receive needed support. At a time when the nation is divided and anti-immigration at rhetoric, we at DUSA believe immigrants are the strong pillars of this nation. Thus, it’s important for us to provide these workshops to empower immigrants and the overall community.
