D.C. Mayor Muriel Bowser has announced a new, first-ever partnership between the city and an immigration advocacy nonprofit to make citizenship services more readily available for immigrants who live or work in the District.

The city government is pairing with the National Immigration Forum to forge the New American Workforce Partnership, with the goal of helping 2,000 immigrant residents in D.C. to become American citizens.

Bowser made the announcement this week at the U.S. District Court Immigration and Naturalization ceremony.

The partnership aims to engage both private businesses and D.C. government employees and their family members.
