    Two officials from the Hamburg Naturalization Office presented the facts and answered questions.

    Upcoming Events

    Thursday, November 09, 2017 at 12:00 PM
    To be announced in Hamburg, Germany

    November 9th: 1 year later...

    One year after waking up to the shock that remains an unavoidable part of our lives, we want to come together and remember what we are fighting for, and what is at stake.  In Germany, November 9th is often referred to as "Schicksalstag", with momentous events taking place throughout history on that date.  This November 9th, we also want to remember that the fate of the United States and the world has not been decided by last year's election.  We are the difference, which we have already proven, and will not stop proving going forward.

    More details about this event, and others on the weekends before and after, will be announced soon.
