The Tennessee Immigrant and Refugee Rights Coalition (TIRRC) hosted a workshop this past Saturday in Chattanooga to educate immigrants about how to begin the process of obtaining American citizenship. During the event, volunteer attorneys assisted attendees in determining their eligibility for citizenship while others helped fill out necessary forms. TBA Immigration Section Chair Terry Olsen with the Olsen Law Firm provided training to help volunteers spot legal issues in the application process. TIRCC is a statewide organization dedicated to empowering immigrants and refugees throughout Tennessee by helping them defend their rights and be recognized as positive contributors to the state.
