VOLUNTEER and Join Us at the Annual Citywide Citizenship Application Assistance Event on May 11th!

Please Support AABANY and Volunteer with Us for the Saturday, May 11th, Citywide Citizenship Day 2013.

We invite you to participate in the largest naturalization application assistance event in New York State! Your skills and experience will be an enormous asset and we greatly value your commitment.

AABANY is co-sponsoring this event again. This year, we hope to have at least 10 experienced AABANY immigration law practitioners participate. But we also need the help of all attorneys and paralegals — whether you practice immigration law or not! We need any and all AABANY members to participate on Citizenship Day, in order to better serve and represent the APA immigrant community.


Attorneys and paralegals with or without expertise in naturalization and citizenship law. We need your help to determine applicant’s eligibility for naturalization, assure that applicants leave the event with a properly completed application, and to assist and/or supervise volunteers providing application assistance.


Saturday, May 11, 2013 from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. But if you can only come for part of the day, that’s ok too. Volunteer whatever time you can — whether it’s a morning or an afternoon. 


John Jay College of Criminal Justice, Haaren-Hall Building, 899 Tenth Avenue, Gymnasium, 4th Floor, New York, NY 10019. 

How to Register: Click here to be taken to the registration form. Once there, you should chose “AABANY” as your affiliation so we can keep track of registration and attendance for you. 

Why Volunteer?  Because you are helping the many immigrants in our city who hope for and deserve U.S. citizenship — but cannot afford private attorney legal fees to achieve their goal. Plus, I guarantee that you will have fun and enjoy a great deal of personal satisfaction by assisting others during this pro bono event. I know this because I see the happy faces of our volunteers each year! This is always a wonderful experience!

Climate for Change: Overhauling a Broken Immigration System

Congratulations, Rio Guerrero, Co-Chair, Immigration and Nationality Law Committee, on being published in the ABA Litigation Section Minority Trial Lawyer! 

The sun set on pragmatic and broad immigration law relief on April 30, 2001, and few could have predicted that a decade would pass before we would see any rays of hope. Indeed, the post-9/11 anti-immigrant rhetoric and vitriol have raged for more than a decade, but in recent years a chorus of voices supporting immigration-law reform has grown louder, achieving piecemeal improvements and calling for a comprehensive solution to our country’s broken immigration system. Today, almost unexpectedly, we finally begin to see meaningful change emerging on the horizon.
