Celebrating Constitution Day and Citizenship Day with Naturalization Ceremonies

Constitution Day and Citizenship Day are observed on the same day each year, September 17th. This day is set aside to celebrate the signing of the U.S. Constitution in 1787 and also to observe and recognize the responsibilities of all U.S. citizens!

The U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) marked this occasion by holding special naturalization ceremonies across the country starting on September 17th and ending on September 23rd. This year more than 36,000 new citizens will take their oath during more than 200 naturalization ceremonies across the country. Many of the ceremonies will be held using museums, historic and public libraries, government landmarks and national park sites as their backdrop. For a full list of 2015 Constitution Day and Citizenship Day naturalization ceremonies, review the USCIS news release, “Celebrating Constitution Day and Citizenship Day with Naturalization Ceremonies“. You can also follow the actives on @USCIS on Twitter and Facebook.com/USCIS.

Note: USCIS is launching new efforts to highlight U.S. citizenship and immigrant civic integration as part of the celebration of Constitution Day and Citizenship Day. These initiatives are meant to improve customer service and support aspiring citizens on their path to becoming naturalized citizens. For more information on these new initiatives, please review the USCIS New Release, “USCIS Expands Efforts to Highlight Citizenship and Immigrant Integration“.
