The Washington New Americans Program is grateful for the support of our 700+ volunteers, including pro-bono attorneys, paralegals, interpreters, and general volunteers, who make our work possible.
The Washington New Americans program helps immigrants achieve their dream of American citizenship! The process can be daunting, and many immigrants lack the resources or access to information on how to apply.
You can join us in empowering the 263,000 eligible Legal Permanent Residents of Washington State to become full-fledged American citizens!
If you are an immigration attorney, a paralegal, a law or paralegal student, or a general member of our community, you can help!
