Citizenship is about assuming social responsibility by contributing to the prosperity of America and by holding elected officials accountable on the tough challenges of the day. It is about realizing the promise of change.
On September 17th – Citizenship Day – hundreds of community members from multiple states who represent citizenship at its best and embody its spirit will come together in our nation’s Capitol for “Unity In Movement.” The theme reflects our belief that in order to enable communities to lead long, prosperous lives, diverse sectors and constituencies must gather to work together.
The event is an opportunity for all Americans, young and old, urban and rural, immigrant and non-immigrant to walk the halls of Congress with a united voice for social change.
What does citizenship mean to you?
