For a Green Card Holder or Legal Permanent Resident (LPR), beginning the application process for United States Citizenship might seem intimidating, but with the help of a Citizenship Workshop, taking the first step becomes far easier.
On June 30th, the Greater Boston Citizenship Initiative (GBCI) is holding a workshop from 11 am-2 pm in Fields Corner, Dorchester at the Viet-AID building. As one of the partnering organizations in the GBCI, the IIIC is participating in the workshop and encouraging potential new citizens to register!
The IIIC helps Legal Permanent Residents with the entire naturalization process, from completing the application to ESOL and citizenship classes. At citizenship workshops, volunteers help process citizenship applications and prepare them for submission to USCIS, free of charge.
A workshop is a great way to apply for US citizenship, particularly if you have questions, are unsure about the process or your eligibility or have simply been putting it off for years. The IIIC offers free in-office consultations about naturalization prior to clinics, at which the application and supporting documentation (if needed) are explained. Individuals who take advantage of the expert advice available at the IIIC will arrive at the clinic fully prepared for application processing.
If you are a Legal Permanent Resident and have been so for at least five years, or are married to an American citizen and have been a Legal Permanent Resident for three years, you meet the most basic eligibility requirement for citizenship.
Pre-registration for the clinic is strongly encouraged. For information about the citizenship process and to register for the clinic call or email: (617) 542-7654 ext. 26 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
The workshop will take place on Saturday June 30, from 11 am- 2 pm 42 Charles Street Dorchester, MA 02122. The closest T stop is Fields Corner on the Red Line.
