Citizenship Workshop (Volunteers Needed)

February 2, 2008

Help your neighbors realize their dream of citizenship!
On Saturday, February 2, 2008, please join the NLG as a cosponsor with the American Immigration Lawyers Association Northern California Chapter at a Citizenship Workshop.

The event will be held at:
Hastings College of the Law, Mayer Lounge
198 McAllister Street
San Francisco
Saturday, February 2, 2008
10:00 am – 2:00 pm (volunteers are needed from 9:00-12:00 and from 12:00-3:00)
Hastings is conveniently located near the Civic Center BART/Muni station.
Parking is available at the Civic Center garage on McAllister (between Polk and Larkin).
See training information below.

For most immigrants, becoming a United States citizen is the culmination of many years of hard work and waiting. Being a citizen offers those who have worked hard a new opportunity to have a greater say and a
stronger voice in determining our country's future.
We will be helping legal permanent residents fill out their citizenship applications, and we will be answering
questions about the process. Many community organizations will be present to provide additional information about resources available for naturalization, immigration, and immigrants. For the event to be truly successful, we need your help in assisting community members. We particularly need volunteers with a variety of language skills, especially Spanish, Cantonese, Mandarin, Russian and Vietnamese. The workshop will be open to the public 10:00 am to 2:00 pm. We need volunteers 9:00-12:00 and 12:00-3:00. (You may volunteer for both.)

If you are able to volunteer on February 2, please email Christina Lee at advocacy@ailanorcal.com. We will put you on a list to receive emails containing important volunteer information for the event.
PLEASE NOTE: YOU MUST HAVE PHOTO ID IN ORDER TO GET PAST HASTINGS SECURITY

We will also host a training for those who have not had previous experience in assisting clients with
naturalization applications. The training will be held:

We look forward to working with you!
