Project Citizenship Training – Disability Waiver Naturalization Interview Advocacy

Tuesday, April 16, 2019 5:30 PM to 7:00 PM
Boston Bar Association - 16 Beacon Street, Boston, MA


Description:

Project Citizenship will provide the training required for attorneys to attend immigration interviews with Project Citizenship clients with disabilities who are seeking a waiver of the English and civics requirement for naturalization. Attorneys will act as advocates on behalf of the clients, noting how the interview proceeds, asking clarifying questions, making persuasive arguments and understanding the reasoning behind USCIS final decision.

Attorneys that attend the training session will be able to volunteer, through Project Citizenship online scheduling, to attend immigration interviews with clients seeking a disability waiver of the English and Civics requirement for naturalization. Project Citizenship will provide all necessary materials, liability insurance, and attorneys will be accompanied by translators when necessary.
