City of Alexandria Celebrates Citizenship Day

WHEN:      Tuesday, September 13
                   6 p.m.

WHO:         Mayor William D. Euille and Members of Alexandria City Council

WHERE:     Alexandria City Hall, Market Square
                    301 King St.
                    Alexandria, VA 22314
                    (In case of inclement weather, event will be in Vola Lawson Lobby in City Hall)

WHAT:  The City of Alexandria will join the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services in recognizing individuals as naturalized United States citizens at its Citizenship Day event. During the event, the honorees will be sworn in and will take the oath of allegiance for United States citizenship.     

Individuals who have become naturalized citizens have met the requirements for naturalization that include: a period of continuous residence and physical presence in the United States; an ability to read, write and speak English; knowledge and understanding of United States history and government; good moral character; and attachment to the principles of the United States Constitution.

The September 13 event also recognizes Constitution Day and National Citizenship Day, traditionally celebrated on September 17. On this day, civic and government groups across the country gather to discuss, honor, and celebrate the privileges and responsibilities of citizenship in the United States, and to honor both native-born and naturalized foreign-born citizens.
