  • VOLUNTEER: Citizenship Fair - September 21th, 2019

    Saturday, September 21, 2019 at 07:00 AM
    Anaheim Convention Center in Anaheim, CA
    33 RSVPs

    Welcome,

    Our Citizenship Fairs are held once every three months and aim to provide free naturalization services to as many legal permanent residents in Orange County as possible. Thanks to our partner organizations and volunteers, this past June 22nd Citizenship Fair was a success, and we are ecstatic to share the results of the day!

    • N-400 Completed Applications: 140
    • Total Attendance:180
    • Applicants saved approximately $90,000 (typically $500 to have an attorney assist with completing the N-400)
    • Volunteers: 150+
    • 90 completed fee waivers saving applicants $65,250 (USCIS $725 filing fee per application)
    • 10 partial fee waivers saved applicants $3,200 (USCIS $320 filing fee for a partial fee waiver)
    • Total saved on fee waivers = $68,450

    With your help, these Citizenship Fairs are not simply to help legal permanent residents apply for citizenship, but they are also an avenue to increase democracy, to serve our communities and to aid families in saving money on attorney and filing fees. We are able to provide these free services due to donations from our supporters. We could not do this work without you, and we are deeply grateful for your continued support.
