Citizenship Day 2022

February 12, 2022, is AILA Citizenship Day

AILA is pleased to announce that AILA’s 16th Annual Citizenship Day will take place on Saturday, February 12, 2022. In unprecedented times and with innovative ideas emerging regarding virtual pro bono, we hope your chapter will join us in giving local immigrants peace of mind and a voice in the American political process. Please save the date! Additional information regarding planning will be shared online as it becomes available.

Citizenship Day is a single-day nationwide event hosted by AILA chapters across the country and their local grassroots partners. Each year, Citizenship Day helps thousands of eligible legal permanent residents to prepare and apply for U.S. naturalization. According to the Department of Homeland Security, Office of Immigration Statistics, in 2019, 9,200,000 legal permanent residents were eligible to naturalize.

In times fraught with negativity and fear surrounding the word "immigration", this annual event is taking on greater meaning. Citizenship workshops hosted by AILA chapters and affiliates will help create a safe and welcoming place for all immigrants and highlight the beautiful and powerful impact of immigrants in the United States.

If you have any questions, please contact probono@aila.org. Join us in ensuring that everyone has an equal opportunity to achieve the American Dream!
