Happy US Citizenship Day! Join the Office of New Americans of Miami-Dade as we hear from New American elected officials representing Miami-Dade County locally and in Tallahassee. We’ll be discussing what inspired them to run for office and how being an immigrant influences the work they do for the community. (Visit us online or follow on social media, for a list of speakers.)

With a theme of Food. Family. Freedom., the community-at-large is invited to celebrate the social and economic contributions of the more than 2 million immigrants in South Florida.

As a part of Miami Citizenship Week, residents are encouraged to support immigrant powered businesses, attend virtual events, learn about those that make Miami so vibrant and diverse, and even try a new recipe from one of the many countries that make up Miami-Dade. Events include discussions with immigrant business owners and local elected officials, virtual brunch, naturalization clinics, food recipe sharing, and more. In partnership with Cities for Citizenship (C4C), this week of happenings is part of a major national initiative of more than 85 participating cities and counties aimed at increasing citizenship among eligible U.S. permanent residents and encouraging investment in citizenship and financial empowerment programs.
