JCRC will train citizenship fair volunteers

The Jewish Community Relations Council of the Jewish Federation of Southern Arizona will hold a citizenship fair volunteer training with immigration attorneys Mo Goldman and Alan Bennett on Sunday, Nov. 19, noon-3 p.m. at the Federation office, 3718 E. River Road.

Volunteers will learn how to help U.S. permanent residents eligible to become citizens to fill out their naturalization applications.

Other volunteer opportunities include check-in/check-out assistance, prescreening phone interviews (bilingual speakers preferred), helping with fee waiver forms and helping with logistics for the event.

“The Jewish Community Relations Council believes that sponsoring a citizenship fair perfectly embraces part of our mission of tikkun olam — repairing the world,” says Richard White, JCRC chair.

“We are humbled knowing that as volunteers, we’ll be helping a group of legal immigrants living in our community to move closer to their dream of becoming U.S. citizens.”

The training is free and lunch will be provided. RSVP is required at jfsa.org/jcrccitzenshiptraining. For more information, contact Alma Hernandez, JCRC coordinator, at ahernandez@jfsa.org.
