Washington, D.C. – On Saturday, August 18th, Congresswoman Julia Brownley (D-Westlake Village) will host a workshop for eligible legal permanent residents who are interested in applying for U.S. citizenship.

Volunteers will be on hand at the U.S. Citizenship Workshop to assist individuals with the naturalization application, fee waiver assistance, and the filing process. The workshop is taking place from 10:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. at the Thousand Oaks Library (1401 E. Janss Road, Thousand Oaks, CA 91362). Applicants must be legal permanent residents for at least five years, or three years if married to a U.S. citizen.

“America is a great nation because of its diversity,” said Congresswoman Brownley. “It was founded by immigrants, and our history and heritage is rich because of the countless contributions of the immigrant community. All of us here share a common desire to achieve the American Dream, and for some Ventura County residents, that means being active participants in our nation’s democratic process by the rights granted to us as United States citizens. I welcome all eligible legal permanent residents who live in Ventura County to attend the workshop and learn more about the honor and privilege of becoming a U.S. citizen.”

This service is free, but space is limited and appointments are required. Representatives from Brownley’s district office urge anyone interested in attending the workshop to schedule an appointment by calling (805) 379-1779.
