Our first Pro Bono training of the year is coming up in two weeks, and we can’t wait to get started.
On September 17, 2016, which is naturally recognized as Citizenship Day, volunteers led by Project Citizenship will help hundreds of immigrants apply to become American citizens. In connection with Project Citizenship, the BBA hosts a training to teach attorneys how to fill out the citizenship application and answer many of the questions about the process that applicants may have.
The training will take place on September 12 from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m.
Last year, more than 30 BBA attorneys came to 16 Beacon to learn how to file an application for American citizenship – as well as an application fee waiver – on behalf of a client. Just five days later, they took that information with them and joined more than 200 other volunteers at the Timilty Middle School in Roxbury to assist those applying for naturalized American Citizenship.
It was a hectic, moving day, our volunteers told us. We hope that you will consider taking part this year!
