Naturalization ceremony welcomes new citizens

In honor of the International Day of Peace, 150 people from 40 different countries took the Oath of Allegiance and became U.S. citizens at Civic Plaza on September 23. Each year, the Human Rights Commission hosts a naturalization ceremony to celebrate vibrant immigrant and refugee communities and to demonstrate that Bloomington is a welcoming city.
