Tennessee Immigrant and Refugee Right's Coalition (TIRRC)
Our Citizenship Workshop is a one day event where Lawful Permanent Residents (LPRs) qualified to become citizens receive assistance from volunteer attorneys, law students, and community members to apply for naturalization at no cost for the service. These workshops take place in different areas all across Tennessee, where the service is needed the most.
Our Citizenship Workshop helps immigrant families fulfill their American Dream of becoming citizens and opening the doors for civic participation and political rights.

New American Success Stories
Leticia (“Lety”) is originally from Mexico. She immigrated to the United States in 1996 to find new opportunities and a better life. Since her arrival to the U.S., Leticia has given back to the community and the place she loves so much and calls home.
Lety started working as a volunteer in prisons, domestic violence shelters for women, and is now an organizer and leader in the Hispanic community. After more than nine years living in the shadows, Lety naturalized in 2010 with the help of TIRRC. Leticia is proud to be an American citizen and excited to be able to exercise her political rights and have her voice heard.
Lety is now helping TIRRC for our coming Citizenship Workshops by helping identify and outreach LPR in her community, so more immigrants like her get a voice.
