Helping those from outside the borders of our country become citizens, and write their
own American success stories, goes right to the heart of who we are and what we do at CUNY. I’m extremely excited about Citizenship Day. We expect to help about 600 permanent residents
apply for citizenship with personalized assistance from more than 330 volunteers and 80 CUNY staff. It will be the largest citizenship application-assisted
event ever in New York City. [Allan Wernick]
On the 21st of September, more than 60 percent of the people who walk through those doors
will get a fee-waiver application included in their package.
