Mayor Parker Proclaims Citizenship Week
Celebrating "The Many Faces of Houston"
Special events November 11-17

promote civic engagement and cultural diversity
November 7, 2012. Houston Mayor Annise Parker presented a City proclamation kicking off the City's Fourth Annual Citizenship Week, Celebrating the Many Faces of Houston, scheduled for November 11-17, 2012. The celebration will feature special events focusing on what it means to be a Houstonian.

“Citizenship Week calls attention to the rights, privileges and responsibilities we have as citizens of this richly diverse city,” said Mayor Parker. “Equally important, it calls upon all citizens to join in a tradition that makes Houston a great city—our civic duty to serve our community.”

Citizenship Week encourages Houstonians to become active in civic affairs and public service embracing the city’s rich cultural diversity. The celebration also spotlights Houston as global city with a vibrant multicultural community and strong international business culture.

Citizenship Week is an initiative of the City’s Office of International Communities (OIC). The annual event is organized under the guidance of the Citizenship Week Steering Committee, composed of representatives of Houston's diverse communities. This year’s event presenters include the Houston Public Library, the Houston Airport System and numerous community partners.

Citizenship Week opens with a celebration on Sunday, November 11, 2-5 p.m., at Baker-Ripley Neighborhood Center, 5600 Rookin Street, Houston, TX 77074. The family event will feature performances, ethnic foods, information booths, demonstrations and craft activities. Many events and activities will take place at locations throughout the city as part of the week-long celebration. Among scheduled events are film screenings and special displays at selected Houston Public Library locations and an art exhibit in the City Hall Annex tunnel. For more information and a full calendar of events, visit www.citizenshipweek.org.

The Office of International Communities (OIC), a division of the Department of Neighborhoods, is proud to collaborate with the Citizenship Week Steering Committee, City departments and community partners for the celebration of Citizenship Week. To learn more about OIC, visit www.houstontx.gov.
