BERWYN -- The World's Largest Laundromat, in its continuing commitment to the community, is partnering with local U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services representatives to hold an information event right inside the laundromat.

Officials will be in the laundromat from 3 to 6 p.m. Sunday, Dec. 16. They will have free packets, DVDs and even citizenship flashcards. They will take your questions about the various programs and reforms.

"We want to make this information accessible to all," Benson says. "This isn’t a hearing in Washington or a political fundraiser in downtown Chicago. This is a community meeting, right here in Berwyn."

This isn’t the first time the World’s Largest Laundromat has worked with the local USCIS office. On Nov. 3, a similar event was held in the store, complete with mock naturalization interviews. Then, on Nov. 28, the laundromat held an event specifically about the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program. The new reform allows certain people who came to the United States as children and meet several key guidelines to request consideration of deferred action for a period of two years, subject to renewal, and would then be eligible for work authorization.

That event, co-sponsored by the North Berwyn Park District, was at Prairie Oak School, 1427 Oak Park Ave. in Berwyn. It featured a PowerPoint presentation byUSCIS Chicago District Director Lori Pietropaoli  and Community Relations Officer Amy Stern. Also, Ambrosio Martinez from Pilsen's Instituto Del Progreso Latino set up a table on his organization's programs and handled a steady line of questioners.

"We're committed to being a resource on this issue," Benson said. "Come to us, and we'll put you in front of the people with the answers."
