LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) — Two organizations are working together to help people become naturalized citizens. Lafayette Urban Ministries and Lafayette Adult Resource Academy offer a free citizenship class.
There is one requirement to enroll, the person must be a a resident of Tippecanoe County.
The course helps people considering applying for citizenship prepare for the naturalization exam.
Social Justice Minister at LUM, Susan Brouillette hopes the class will make people feel comfortable.
"We believe there are about 2,000 people in Tippecanoe County who are eligible for citizenship based on their permanent resident or green card status so we are encouraging them to go forward and become U.S. citizens," said Brouillette.
The class meets on Tuesdays and Thursdays at the Lafayette Adult Resource Academy.
