Providing Comprehensive No-Cost Assistance to
U.S. Citizenship & DACA Applicants

In New Jersey, there are about 390,000 legal permanent residents eligible to apply for U.S. citizenship. By helping these New Americans achieve U.S. citizenship and exercise their voice through the democratic process, our communities will become that much stronger. If you or someone you know is interested in applying for U.S. citizenship or qualifies for Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA), join us for our first citizenship clinic next Saturday, April 26, 2014, in Newark.
