U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) have released The Citizen’s Almanac, a publication particularly developed for new citizens. The Citizen’s Almanac is a collection of America’s most esteemed symbols of freedom and right. The Almanac links our newest citizens with the rich civic history we all share as Americans. To enhance the naturalization process for the more than 700,000 new citizens the United States welcomes each year, The Citizen’s Almanac will be distributed by USCIS at all naturalization ceremonies starting this month.

“The Citizens Almanac is a valuable resource, helping remind our nation’s newest citizens that great responsibilities accompany the privilege of citizenship,” said USCIS Deputy Director Jonathan “Jock” Scharfen. “By continuing to learn about the founding ideals, achievements and history of the United States, our new Americans will preserve and ensure freedom and liberty for future generations.”

Endorsed by the National Endowment for the Humanities and reviewed by U.S. history experts, the publication includes information on:
  • Rights and responsibilities of U.S. citizenship;

  • The history behind many of America’s most patriotic anthems and symbols;

  • The creation of our most important founding documents;

  • Landmark decisions of the U.S. Supreme Court;

  • Biographical details on several prominent foreign-born Americans and;

  • Important presidential and historic speeches.
A compact size description of the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution of the United States accompanies The Citizen’s Almanac to encourage new citizens to learn more about the rights and responsibilities they now enjoy as U.S. citizens.
