Montgomery County Executive Isiah Leggett will be on hand at Veterans Plaza in Downtown Silver Spring to help launch a Citizenship Initiative to promote and help eligible residents in the County to become U.S. Citizens. 

The County has joined Cities for Citizenship and the “Naturalize Now! Summer Citizenship Campaign,” a coordinated naturalization event and communications outreach effort to encourage 1,000,000 eligible community members to naturalize this year. Cities for Citizenships is a national initiative aimed at increasing citizenship among eligible U.S. permanent residents and encouraging cities across the country to invest in citizenship programs.
