US Citizenship: The Next Step in Immigrant Rights?

A Bay Area Ethnic Media Roundtable in San Jose

Happy New Year!  We hope you will join us for an ethnic media roundtable next Friday, Jan. 17 in San Jose -- about a new 2014 citizenship campaign, and the role of Bay Area ethnic media.


How many Bay Area immigrants are eligible to apply for US citizenship -- and what would happen if they did?  What do immigrant families need to know about upcoming changes to the US citizenship application in 2014?  What are the major hurdles that prevent immigrants from becoming citizens, and what can ethnic media do to address them?


Please join New America Media in San Jose for a roundtable discussion with Bay Area ethnic media, immigrant advocacy organizations and young recently naturalized citizens on the role of ethnic media in the new citizenship campaign of 2014. 

Vanessa Sandoval of Services, Immigrant Rights & Education Network (SIREN)
Adrian Avila of Silicon Valley De-Bug
Amir Music of International Rescue Committee (IRC)
Suzanne Sliter and Hemali Gajaria of The Bethlehem Project
Bea Pangilinan of the Asian Law Alliance (ALA).
