Citizenship Mentoring is non-partisan and aims to assist eligible permanent residents prepare for US Citizenship. Citizens participate in the democratic process by exercising their right to vote; only citizens can vote in federal, New York State, and local elections. The League of Women Voters believes in promoting the democratic process.
We are always amazed at the hard work and commitment that our students put into becoming US citizens, and especially appreciate the dedication of our volunteers that help them along the way.
We'll be celebrating 29 new citizens when we attend the Naturalization Ceremony on May 17, and we hope to register all 29! To add to the festivities, one of our students will receive her citizenship that day. The next ceremony will be held on Friday, June 21 at 9:30 am at Hibernian Hall in Schenectady.
As always, if you'd like to help with either the Citizenship Mentoring Group or one of the naturalization ceremonies, contact: Ann Hatke at firstname.lastname@example.org.
