The Office of Immigrant and Refugee Affairs is organizing an event called Seattle United for Immigrants and Refugees, a day of service for immigrants and refugees on January 20th. This is one of several ways that the City of Seattle is responding to the fear and uncertainty felt by many of our immigrant and refugee communities.
This day of services will include naturalization assistance, Know Your Rights trainings, free legal consultations with immigration attorneys, assistance with family safety planning and preparing for family separation, as well as information about City of Seattle services and programs.
