Citizenship Day 2022

September 17, 2022, is AILA Citizenship Day

AILA held its 17th Annual Citizenship Day on Saturday, September 17, 2022. Thank you to the 23 AILA chapters who participated and all the volunteers who generously donated their time and expertise to give local immigrants peace of mind and a voice in the American political process. Stay tuned for more information on AILA Citizenship Day in 2023!

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.
