Communication and Outreach

September 17th marks Citizenship Day. Our national network has built a better, more trustworthy, road to naturalization. It’s been an honor to assist more than 560,000 applicants for citizenship since our founding in 2011, and a joy to help so many have a voice in our democracy. Citizenship Day is our day!

Please join us in celebrating by posting messages on social media celebrating citizenship during the week leading up to Citizenship Day! This social media toolkit includes graphics for social media, sample messaging, and hashtags.

Citizenship Day honors what it means to be a citizen. In particular, the day recognizes the new Americans who completed their paths to citizenship this year—no small feat, given the many obstacles and delays presented by the COVID-19 pandemic and other roadblocks. We are celebrating the week leading up to Citizenship Day (Citizenship Week) by highlighting the benefits of U.S. citizenship and thanking our New Americans Campaign partners, all of you who assist aspiring citizens every day.

Thank you for all the work you do to ease the path for aspiring citizens of the U.S!
