Center for Immigrants' Rights to host naturalization workshop
June 7, 2011
The Center for Immigrants’ Rights and the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) will host a “Path to Naturalization” workshop on Tuesday, March 15, 2011 to review the naturalization process and discuss the rights and responsibilities of United States citizens. Carla Pendino, Community Relations Officer from the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services, will conduct the workshop and cover topics, including naturalization eligibility requirements, the naturalization test, and background information on USCIS.
“The process of becoming a U.S. citizen can be daunting. I hope this workshop helps to demystify the citizenship process for both individuals interested in applying for naturalization and community members who want to learn more about the citizenship process and the USCIS agency,” said Shoba Sivaprasad Wadhia, clinical professor and director of Penn State’s Center for Immigrants’ Rights.
The session will be held from 5:00 to 6:30 p.m. in Room 114 of the Lewis Katz Building, University Park Campus, and is free of charge to Penn State faculty, staff, and students as well as to local community members who are interested in learning more about the U.S. citizenship process.
