Last Saturday, Sen. Kevin Parker and the City University of New York collaborated at the Flatbush YMCA on their annual free citizenship application assistance event, CUNY CitizenshipNow!

“In this great time of uncertainty, and despair, it becomes so much more important that we bring immigration services to the community to help with the cumbersome process of naturalization,” Parker said. “This also provided us with an opportunity to dispel the tension and anxiety around the proposed public charge changes, and what applicants can or cannot do that may affect their chances of being granted citizenship.”

In partnership with New York State Assemblywoman Rodneyse Bichotte and New York City Councilman Jumaane D. Williams, attendees were provided with free and confidential one-on-one consultations with highly competent immigration attorneys and paralegals to assess their immigration and naturalization needs.
