May 1, 2006 | News from the Chancellor
I am pleased to announce that “CITIZENSHIP NOW!” the extraordinarily successful CUNY and Daily News Call-In that has helped 20,000 of New Yorkers with immigration questions, resumes today and continues through May 5. As interest in immigration issues intensifies around the nation, the need for this service is clear. Last year’s event resulted in an overwhelming response as more than 140,000 calls were placed to the Daily News. This fourth Call-In is staffed by more than 180 CUNY professionals, immigration lawyers, paralegals, students and other volunteers. It is led by Allan Wernick, the Chair of CUNY’s highly regarded Citizenship and Immigration Project, a Professor of Law at Baruch College and the author of the “Immigration Advice” column that appears every Thursday in the New York Daily News. Callers can reach experts to answer questions in English at 212-210-1771 or in Spanish at 212-210-1781. The CUNY/Daily News partnership is an outstanding public service that helps tens of thousands of families gain access to the American Dream. We are proud to be the leading urban public university in the country in offering free citizenship services to its students and the immigrant communities of our City and State.
