Citizenship Month City of Houston


Citizenship Month, an annual volunteer driven initiative of the City of Houston’s Office of International Communities, serves to brings cultural, civic, and educational awareness to all people who call Houston home.

2016 will mark the eighth year of celebrating “The Many Faces of Houston.” This annual celebration is organized under the guidance of a committee of community advisors in collaboration with multiple civic partners.  Neighborhood Centers, Inc. serves as the 2016 Fiscal Agent.

The City of Houston’s Citizenship Month initiative encourages civic engagement and commemorates the spirit of citizenship that helps make Houston the nation’s most diversified community. It is a month of celebrating the vibrant mix of native Houstonians, transplants from other cities and states, immigrants, refugees, foreign students, and international resident workers and an opportunity to take pride in our great city.
