Did you know it costs…
- $495 every year to renew a temporary work authorization
- $725 for legal permanent residents to apply for U.S. citizenship
- $1225 to apply for a “green card” and obtain legal permanent residence
If our neighbors cannot afford to renew their work permits, the risk of deportation is real. Obtaining a green card and attaining citizenship provide a real measure of security in these uncertain times.
You can help by hosting a Welcome to the Table party for your friends and family and raise money to subsidize these fees. Everything you need to know is in the Welcome to the Table Toolkit: https://getorganizedbk.wpengine.com/welcome-to-the-table-toolkit
Our partners are Center for Family Life and Atlas DIY, community based organizations in Sunset Park. If you cannot host a party, you can support their work directly on the Welcome to the Table Fundraising site: https://www.crowdrise.com/welcometothetable
