Application to Join Citizenship Month Steering Committee

Citizenship Month encourages civic engagement and commemorates the spirit of citizenship that makes Houston one of the nation’s most diverse communities. During the whole month of November, participants celebrate the vibrant makeup of Houston, which is home to native Houstonians, transplants from other cities and states, immigrants, refugees, foreign students, and international resident workers.
