Becoming a Citizen
presented by Laurie S. Z. Greenberg
People who are born in the U.S. are automatically granted citizenship. A naturalized citizen is a person who was born in another country but has lawfully become a citizen of the United States under the U.S. Constitution and laws. What are the rights and privileges that come with citizenship? Do naturalized citizens enjoy all of them? And what are the responsibilities? Laurie will open this conversation with information about the naturalization process and who is eligible to apply. She will prompt an open, self-reflective discussion about what makes someone a good citizen, what some of the barriers are to citizenship, why they exist, and some of the reasons why the nine million immigrants in the U.S. who are eligible are not applying for citizenship.
