Houston is a city that embraces diversity and civic engagement; a community built on dreams powered by hard work, guided by common sense and inspired by creativity. We respect the rights and responsibilities of good citizenship.
Citizenship Month is the end result of a recommendation from members of Houston’s vibrant international community. The first celebration took place in 2009 and we are now gearing up to celebrate our 9th year anniversary throughout the month of November.
The City of Houston will partner with community organizations to celebrate Citizenship Month 2017, featuring a series of events and activities highlighting the many social, economic and civic contributions and accomplishments of our vast and diverse population.
My administration is proud to champion the celebration of Houston’s diversity through this annual event. I hope that as you receive more information from the Office of New Americans and members of our Citizenship Month Steering Committee, you will be inspired to join us in this celebration of our City’s strong commitment to civic leadership, good citizenship and community engagement
