    Learn about the unfair fee increase proposed by USCIS.  Make your voice heard!

    On November 14, U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) officially published a proposal which would raise the naturalization application fee by 83% to $1,170.  The proposal would also eliminate all naturalization fee waivers.  These proposed changes would put the dream of U.S. citizenship beyond the reach of millions of Lawful Permanent Residents (LPRs) who are eligible to naturalize, including more than 4.4 million Latinos.

    Naturalization is important and beneficial to all Americans.  If implemented, the changes would prevent patriotic and committed LPRs from becoming full participants in our nation's civic life.  It would limit their opportunity to pursue economic mobility, which contributes to our nation's prosperity.
    Fee changes proposed by U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services will significantly increase filing fees for various immigration benefits, including Naturalization, Lawful Permanent Residency, Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, or DACA, and Employment Authorization. The agency has proposed, for the first time, to charge a fee to apply for asylum.  Submit your comments opposing the unfair naturalization fee hike proposal by December 16, 2019.

    Visit KIAC's website for more details.


    You can submit your written comments at the federal government portal [click hereor by mail.  We have provided a template [click here].  We encourage you to personalize your comments.

    The deadline for comments is December 16, so please act as soon as you can.

    You may have heard about the new Presidential Primary scheduled for March 10, 2020. What you may not know is that the primary election will replace the Precinct Caucus for deciding who gets delegates and who doesn't. Who the delegates are will be decided later at Legislative District Caucuses. Since the process is new to Washington, our Past Chair and current State Committee person, Mary Bryant has condensed the process for us. Click below for a one page summary.

    Voting in the Presidential Primary will be a two part process in order to have your vote counted in WA State.

    Voters will have to identify for the election as √Democrat or √Republican.

    Our PCO and Issues Committees have put together a great program for the November 21 meeting of the 23rd Legislative District Democrats. Most of us know that the Democrats have a Platform with Planks that delineate our beliefs and our hopes for the future. This meeting will give us a chance to make sure that our Platform really does say what we stand for.

    During the next election cycle, we will be asked to vote on our Platform and any changes we want for the future. It is important that we look carefully at what we want our friends and neighbors to know about The Democratic Party and its members. You can help, just remember to show up!

    Meeting is November 21, 6;30pm at Poulsbo Library, 700 NE Lincoln Rd, Poulsbo, WA 98370

Want to build your local party organization? There’s a track for that. Considering a run for office? There’s a track for that. Want to learn skills to volunteer or work for a campaign? You better believe there’s a track for that, too!
