To support National Citizenship Day on September 17, Univisionís WLTV-TV Miami partnered with the Florida International University Law Departmentís citizenship clinic, Hispanic Unity of Florida, Read2Succeed and Catholic Legal Services to provide guidance on the naturalization process and help with the N-400 application. WLTV-TV hosted local workshops to encourage legal permanent residents to apply for U.S. citizenship during National Citizenship Week. In addition, WLTV-TV hosted a phone bank, fielding more than 2,000 calls with questions related to citizenship. As a result, more than 300 applications were processed and additional workshops are being scheduled to assist the rest of the viewers that called into the station.
