If you’ve ever wondered what citizenship means for a family and a community, then you must listen to this story from some of our friends in Napa Valley:

A good man, a farmer in the Napa Valley, helped my grandfather file for citizenship. He saw in my grandfather what I see in so many immigrants today; a hardworking man who wanted to build a future for his children. Citizenship enabled my father to live and work permanently here with dignity and to become a more active member of his adopted community. Eventually, it also meant he could reunite with his family, which is why I’m here today — part of a growing class of Latino professionals here in Napa.
