WHO WE ARE
At the 2017 Convention the AFL-CIO passed a resolution rededicating the labor movement to a concerted citizenship drives as "one of the key strategies to advancing our long-term policy and organizing objectives".
With its vast infrastructure and commitment to justice, the labor movement in Texas can play a critical role in helping to educate our members and communities about the process of applying for citizenship, as well as workplace rights.
To this end, the Texas AFL-CIO and affiliate organizations will host citizenship forums and clinics across the state to help fellow union brothers and sisters as well as their families navigate the naturalization process.
WHAT WE DO
Union members helping individuals and families on their path to U.S. Citizenship.
Attaining citizenship is a journey. You have to earn it. But for too many citizenship hopefuls, that journey is much harder than it should be. Many people who live, work, create jobs, and pay taxes in this country are eligible for citizenship, yet lack of knowledge about how the process works, compounded by costly legal fees, can put the dream out of reach. That's where the Texas AFL-CIO Citizenship Campaign comes in to help. We explain the process, assist with completing the application, and help those who qualify.
