International Rescue Commitee’s Naturalization Ceremony – Seattle, WA

Naturalization-66I’ve had the pure joy of working with IRC’s Seattle Chapter since the start of 2013, connecting with a broad range of international community members around the Pacific Northwest region.  June 20th, 2013 was none other then World Refugee Day where a handful of individuals received their United States Citizenship at a local art gallery in downtown Seattle, which exhibited art by IRC-sponsored refugees turned U.S. citizens.  Here is a look at a naturalization ceremony, welcoming these newly-recognized U.S. citizens.
