Karina Lopez Uniting America AmeriCorps Fellow

I just want to share this amazing picture. This past Saturday we had a citizenship workshop in Bolingbrook and we had an amazing turnout. People were waiting early in the morning, we had about 100 people becoming citizens and more than 20 volunteers helping. I was super excited to share and give information about Uniting America we also played games to keep the people animated and interested such as asking couple of questions of the civics test. I was also giving pens and bracelets to volunteers and all the people waiting. We also answered questions about Uniting America and what it means to have this program in our community. I met a couple volunteers from different organizations like Casa Michoacán, World Relief and New Life Church.
