OCCORD: Naturalization Fair in Anaheim

A diverse coalition of non-profit organizations will host a citizenship fair on Saturday, April 13th 2013 to assist up to 300 eligible permanent residents with their naturalization applications.

The event hosts are Orange County Communities Organized for Responsible Development (OCCORD), Public Law Center, North Orange County Community College District (NOCCCD)/School of Continuing Education, Unite Here Local 11, and Orange County Congregation Community Organization (OCCCO).

At the free event, eligible attendees will receive direct assistance with the naturalization application, identification photographs, photocopies of documents, information on the fee waiver application, access to pro-bono attorneys, and their completed application.

The fair is part of OCCORD’s huge effort to smooth the path to citizenship for 3,000 Orange County immigrants, a countywide effort to encourage eligible legal permanent residents to apply for U.S. citizenship and become full participants in the American political process.

“In a changing Orange County, there are more than 200,000 Americans who are just a few steps away from fully realizing the power of citizenship,” added Orange County Labor Federation Executive Director Tefere Gebre.

“Citizenship is important, it opens up political and economic avenues and access to basic human rights including health, safety and labor protections.”
