The American Immigration Lawyers Association is a great organization, and I am proud to be an active member. We know that this is also important to our clients and future clients.
The American Immigration Lawyers Association (AILA) will celebrate its 4th Annual Citizenship Day on Saturday, April 17 by helping more than 2,000 legal permanent residents apply to become US citizens. In partnership with the “ya es hora ¡Ciudadanía!” campaign, AILA will hold 43 naturalization clinics in 30 states serving more than 2000 immigrants who are preparing to become citizens.
s a single-day, nationwide event, AILA Citizenship Day provides free or low-cost assistance to eligible legal permanent residents who wish to apply for U.S. citizenship, utilizing partnerships between AILA chapters across the country and grassroots organizations such as the “ya es hora ¡Ciudadanía!” campaign. In 2010, AILA Citizenship Day will celebrate its 4th anniversary on a national scale and its second year with the campaign.
AILA’s successes are due in large part to the national collaborative relationships that AILA has developed both with community organizations and stakeholders, as well as the USCIS Office of Citizenship. “The work we do together is much greater than the work we do apart,” said Susan Timmons, AILA’s Pro Bono Associate who coordinates Citizenship Day. “We reach at least a thousand more people with the help of our community partners than we’d be able to independent of them. Together we help hard working residents become citizens of the United States-we help them live their American dream.”
AILA Citizenship Day is an award winning venture, capturing the 2008 Award of Excellence in the Associations Advance America Awards program, a national competition sponsored by the American Society of Association Executives (ASAE) and The Center for Association Leadership.
