Volunteers Needed For Citizenship Workshop
A collaboration of immigrant rights organizations based out of New York City have been organizing over the last two years to help more than 10,000 tri-state area green-card holders apply for citizenship. Now, these organizations are taking their citizenship services –which pair lawful permanent residents with legal experts and volunteers for free – to New Jersey.
On Saturday, October 11, 2014, Mayor Jamel Holley and the Borough Council along with Senator Raymond Lesniak, Assemblyman Joseph Cryan, and Assemblywoman Annette Quijano and in conjunction with NALEO Educational Fund and these other organizations and new partners, will hold a free citizenship workshop for Roselle’s green-card holders who are eligible to apply for citizenship. The Workshop will take place from 11:00 a.m. until 2:00 p.m. at Abraham Clark High School, 122 East 6th Avenue.
“This is critical assistance we’re providing,” said Mayor Holley. “There’s a need for these services in Roselle, and there are distinct benefits derived from citizenship for the community here. We need your assistance for this event and are asking for volunteers. We hope you will join us in this special effort to assist those who have the desire to be citizens of the United States.”
Volunteer recruitment is open to anyone who is interested in immigration related issues. Our volunteers consist of past participants, community members, advocates, attorneys, paralegals, law students, and other immigration service providers. Volunteers are encouraged to attend events on a regular basis, especially those who may be considering a career in immigration services.
If you would like to volunteer, download the form below and email to: email@example.com or call (888) 839-8682.
