For a couple of years now I have been participating in naturalization ceremonies as a representative of the bar association of the state where I work as a lawyer. If you’re not familiar, naturalization ceremonies are where people become citizens. It is a formal legal proceeding, presided over by a federal judge.
At each ceremony, a representative of both of our U.S. Senators and our Congressperson speaks. In addition, a representative of the bar association speaks, and I have volunteered to perform that service several times, including the last two ceremonies which were held on the Fourth of July.
