Natz workshop Feb

We are always in search of general volunteers, interpreters, and legal professionals, to assist community members at our naturalization workshops. At our workshops, we help applicants complete the N-400 naturalization application, provide eligibility screenings, and pro-bono immigration lawyers provide a legal review on completed applications.

Non-attorney volunteers can help with registering applicants, interviewing clients to fill out the application, and managing logistics such as workshop flow and meals for volunteers. Great opportunity for law students and paralegals.

Attorney volunteers can help with legal review by meeting with applicants one-on-one to review their case.

All NEW volunteers MUST attend training starting at 9 AM on the day and location of the workshop.
No foreign language skills or legal background required, but volunteers must be comfortable working with community members whose first language is not English.

Mission Statement

NAKASEC organizes Korean and Asian Americans to achieve social, racial, and economic justice.

Description

Founded by young people, NAKASEC was formed by local, community-based organizations who saw the need for a national organization to coordinate and project a progressive voice on issues of concern to the Korean American community. As its affiliates and chapters work every day with grassroots people, NAKASEC’s programs and agenda is formulated directly by the community it serves. Also, as a result of being part of the NAKASEC network, affiliates and chapters are able to share best practices, collectively troubleshoot issues, and transfer culturally and linguistically competent resources and expertise to build local programs.

In 2010, NAKASEC established a D.C. office. As it learned more about the growing Korean and Asian American communities in Northern Virginia, the issues impacting them and the need for education programs, leadership development and community organizing, it moved its office to Annandale, Fairfax County in 2012. The area now has the fifth largest Korean American population in the country and 60% of all Korean Americans in Virginia live in Fairfax County.

Our main program areas include:
1) youth education and leadership development;
2) social services (such as naturalization and DACA renewal applications);
3) civic engagement;
4) Community organizing
