The South Florida Chapter of the American Immigration Lawyers Association (AILA), in partnership with the Haitian Lawyers Association, the NALEO Educational Fund, and the Unitarian Universalist Congregation of Miami, will be hosting a special citizenship drive. Held in Honor of Citizenship Day on September 17, this event seeks to encourage the Diaspora to become active American citizens, while providing legal and emotional support through the often intimidating process.
This special drive will provide free assistance to lawful permanent residents applying for citizenship. The event will be held on Saturday, September 19, at the Unitarian Universalist Congregation of Miami, from 9 am to 12 pm.
To make this drive a success, the organization is also asking for local attorney and non-attorney volunteers to participate in this event. To join, non-volunteers must complete a short N-400 training program on September 14. The program is also recommended for attorney volunteers. Volunteers will also need to be on hand an hour before and an hour after to set up and dismantle the location.
