Labor Mobilizes - New Americans Initiative

The NYC Central Labor Council in partnership with unions across New York City will work together to assist eligible permanent residents in navigating the process to becoming new U.S. citizens. Naturalization allows people to vote, apply for federal jobs, receive full legal protections, earn higher wages, and make investments that help make the economy stronger for all of us.

The labor movement can help expand access to citizenship and shift the political landscape by partnering with community organizations that offer education and services to assist people with the naturalization process.

Through a series of in-person and virtual activities, we assist union members and their families through the application and gathering of necessary documentation. These activities will culminate in an attorney review process on National Citizenship Day, September 16th, 2023.

If you would like to register for the event please register here or please contact Xiomara Loarte at xloarte@nycclc.org for more information.
