Our New Citizen Story Project

Happy Flag Day! This year, along with our partner, One America, and support from Boeing and Microsoft, we’re taking this venerable American holiday and amplifying it with a focus on celebrating the reciprocal ties and mutual benefits of citizenship.

For the next six weeks, we will be reminding Seattleites of their own connections to citizenship by sharing community leaders’ stories about how their family members became US citizens.

Watch our Facebook page each week for the stories of President Ana Mari Cauce (University of Washington), Diane Douglas (Seattle CityClub), Councilmember Lorena Gonzalez (Seattle City Council), Councilmember Lisa Herbold (Seattle City Council), Rich Stolz (OneAmerica) and Joaquin Uy (Seattle Office of Immigrant and Refugee Affairs).
