A new documentary became available on Netflix today:
The new documentary Out of Many, One is a loving profile of the Citizenship Project, the New-York Historical Society’s free program that assists green card holders in preparing for the USCIS Naturalization Exam, which tests knowledge of United States history and civics. Building to a naturalization ceremony conducted by Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, the film captures the anxieties and sacrifices—as well as the pride—of hopeful American immigrants who have made the journey here. A Netflix release.

I’ve previously shared about the citizenship program featured in the film:
An Artistic Approach to Becoming a U.S. Citizen is a NY Times article about a fascinating museum-based project to prepare people for the Citizenship test.
I’m adding this info to The Best Websites For Learning About Civic Participation & Citizenship.
