Miami Dade County leaders, including Mayor Carlos Gimenez and Chairman Jean Monestime, led yesterday’s launch of the Office of New Americans of Miami-Dade County.
As part of the national Cities for Citizenship initiative, the new service will connect eligible immigrants to financial and legal counseling for the naturalization process.
Cities for Citizenship is chaired by New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio, Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel and Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti, with support from the Center for Popular Democracy and the National Partnership for New Americans. Citi Community Development is the Founding Corporate Partner.
Miami-Dade is the first County in the country to join the campaign.
