New York Daily News and CUNY Citizenship NOW! volunteers help callers with their immigration questions

Thousands of people received free information about immigration thanks to the New York Daily News and City University of New York’s 11th Annual Citizenship NOW! Call-in.

With over 400 trained volunteers, this year’s weeklong event answered questions in languages including English, Spanish, Mandarin, Cantonese, Korean, Russian, Bengali, Haitian Creole, French, Italian, Polish, Yiddish and Arabic.

In partnership with Univision and WABC-TV, the weeklong event included on-air promotional announcements, live coverage and special news segments.

Citizenship NOW! was launched in April 2004 to address the lack of access to information about immigration. It is confidential and free to individuals who need the help the most.

Since its inception, close to 110,000 callers have sought information from the call-in.
