FIU College of Law and Univision host a phone bank to help residents obtain their citizenship.

This past Tuesday Sept. 17, 2013, Florida International University’s College of Law  joined forces with Univision station WLTV, local channel 23, to host a phone bank in support of the National Citizenship Day campaign “Ya es Hora…Ciudadania.”

The volunteers, comprised of members from the National Association of Latino Elected and Appointed Officials (NALEO), Catholic Charities, Hispanic Unity, Read2Succeed, National Council of La Raza (NCLR), and FIU law students advised hundreds of callers on the on application process, and invited them to join clinical workshops on Saturday, Sept. 21, 2013 being held in locations in Miami-Dade and Broward, including at FIU Law in Rafael Diaz Balart Hall’s Founding Dean Leonard P. Strickman Atrium.
