This Flag is Our Flag

Flag Day commemorates the day in 1777 that the Second Continental Congress adopted our flag. Every day, New Americans take the Oath of Allegiance during naturalization ceremonies across the country.

This year, OneAmerica's Washington New Americans program will host our second annual Flag Day celebration at Seattle City Hall on Saturday, June 14th at 10:30am.  Join us to celebrate Flag Day and New Americans from all over the world who have chosen this country and the American flag as their own.

Citizenship Day began with AILA

Seattle-based immigration attorney Paul Soreff saw a need in the immigrant community and, with other devoted advocates, stepped up to meet it. In 2000, Congress passed a law that provided a very short period of time for undocumented immigrants to apply for residency through a special provision under the law (245i). In response, the American Immigration Lawyers Association (AILA) quickly organized a campaign to alert the community of this opportunity.

Citizenship Day Helps Over 100 Immigrants

OneAmerica, the Washington State Chapter of the American Immigration Lawyers Association (AILA), and the Washington New Americans program (WNA) held its last Citizenship Day of the 2010-2011 cycle on Saturday, April 16, in Bellingham, Centralia, and Wenatchee. 123 volunteers, including 26 attorneys, participated to provide free assistance with the citizenship application to 148 immigrants.
