Atlanta’s immigrant population is one of the fastest growing in the nation — yet many eligible immigrants haven’t applied for U.S. citizenship.

Please join New America Media and the New Americans Campaign on Tuesday, June 6, 2017 for a special news briefing with media, immigrant advocacy organizations and recently naturalized citizens — to hear about new initiatives launched by community organizations and the city of Atlanta to make it easier to naturalize.

We will discuss why this is a critical time to become a U.S. citizen, how naturalization protects immigrant families in the current political climate, and the role of ethnic media in the citizenship campaign of 2017.
