Miami Dolphins to Air Citizenship PSAs
November 6, 2015
WASHINGTON, D.C. — The Miami Dolphins already encourage eligible employees to pursue citizenship. Now the team is taking that message to the airwaves during games.
Starting with Sunday’s game against the Buffalo Bills, the Dolphins, a New American Workforce partner, will air public service announcements in English and Spanish to encourage legal permanent residents to apply for U.S. citizenship. The spots from New American Workforce and the New Americans Campaign will run before, during and after the Dolphins’ remaining games this season.
The PSAs will air in English on Finsiders 940 AM and during the game’s live stream on the Dolphins’ website. In Spanish the spots will air on game-day broadcasts on 1210 AM and during the game’s live stream on the local ESPN Spanish language website.
Through their work with New American Workforce, the Dolphins already have been helping their eligible employees learn about citizenship, and they join a growing list of professional sports teams that are promoting citizenship community outreach efforts.
“Through our partnership with the Miami Dolphins, we’ve been able to work together to help hundreds of their employees through the citizenship process,” said Jennie Murray, Director of Integration Programs at the National Immigration Forum. “These PSAs are a great opportunity to expand those opportunities to other Miami residents and highlight the many benefits citizenship brings.
“Together with the Miami Dolphins, we’re helping immigrants get the opportunities, skills and status they need to succeed.”
