Volunteers Needed: Citizenship Clinic

Saturday, October 13th, 9am-3:30pm, Christ Church United, 1 Bartlett St, Lowell

Becoming a U.S. citizen is one of the most important and valuable things an immigrant can do – which is why promoting naturalization and helping people apply is a key part of MIRA’s mission. At our monthly clinics, we guide applicants through the naturalization form, step by step, and let them know if they qualify for a waiver of federal fees. People sign up in advance (usually 20–40, though at this one, our first after the summer break, we expect a larger group), and MIRA’s Citizenship Team, supported by volunteers, go through the process with each applicant, one-on-one. If you’ve never volunteered at one of our clinics before, or haven’t done it for a long time, we’ll need you to come in at 9am to get basic training before we start.

A Rapid Response Rally if Mueller OR ROSENSTEIN are Fired

If the firing happens before 2pm, the event will be held at 5pm the same day. If it happens after 2pm, the event will be held at noon the following day. Ladd and Whitney Memorial (the island outside City Hall), 309 Merrimack Street, Lowell

Nobody is above the law! Donald Trump is publicly considering firing special counsel Robert Mueller. This week, it became clear that he could fire Rosenstein as well. This would be a constitutional crisis for our country. Our response in the minutes and hours following a power grab will dictate what happens next, which is why an immediate response is imperative. If Mueller/Rosenstein are fired or forced out, this will trigger the protest. If they resign, it will not.

Sign up to be notified:
