The Children’s Aid Society works to provide children and families with the supports they need to succeed, thrive and realize their “American dream”. For many of the immigrant parents in the communities served by CAS part of achieving this is being able to fully participate in the democratic process. CAS has joined the ya es hora ¡Ciudadanía! Campaign to engage community members who are eligible permanent residents in an information session to educate them in the naturalization process. With over 400 partnering organizations, the campaign has motivated over 1 million individuals to obtain their U.S. citizenship.

The information session, which is also co-sponsored by Councilmember Ydanis Rodriguez, is to be held this Saturday, January 28th from 11:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. at he Eleanor Roosevelt Intermediate School - I.S. 143 in Washington Heights. The topics to be discussed will include process and documentation requirements to apply for citizenship and the benefits. For more information call 1-888-839-8682 or visit www.YAESHORA.info.
