For Immediate Release, April 19, 2018




The South Asian Bar Association of North America (SABA) is pleased this year to introduce a new program in the form of a nationwide Naturalization Drive. A majority of our chapters will be hosting local drives on May 19, 2018, providing support to the community.


U.S. Citizenship is the path to fully participating in American life. It allows a person to vote, freely travel, protect themselves and family members from the risk of deportation, hold a wider range of jobs, petition to unite with other family members, and run for public office. This first Naturalization Drive is a nationwide event that will allow eligible South Asians in the community to apply for U.S citizenship. Clinics across the country will be available to assist those applying for citizenship. It will be a great event to promote civic engagement to serve the South Asian community pro bono.   


We are excited that the majority of our chapters are participating. If you would like more information about your local event, please reach out each individual chapter. SABA Austin, SABA Chicago, SABA Colorado, SABA DC, SABA Florida, SABA Georgia, SABA Greater Boston, SABA Houston, SABA New Jersey, SABA New York, SABA Northern California, SABA Sacramento, SABA San Diego, SABA Southern California, and SABA Washington will all be holding Drives on May 19. SABA Connecticut and SABA Metro St. Louis will be hosting Drives later in the year.


For more information on a drive in your area, please contact your local chapter or visit
