Naturalization in the Bay Area

In 2013 there were “an estimated 13.1 million LPRs lived in the United States on January 1, 2013, and 8.8 million of them were eligible to naturalize.” (DHS) Since then, the number has only grown. The East Bay Naturalization Collaborative (EBNatz) has been working hard to eligible green card holders apply for their citizenship.  The Easy Bay Times recently wrote an article about naturalization in our community entitle “Immigrants become citizens, illustrating democracy at work“.  EBNatz has been helping increased numbers of LPRs during these trying times. Our next workshop will be held on June 10th at Hayward City Hall.
