Mayor Annise Parker and the Citizenship Week Steering Committee invite you to celebrate the City of Houston Third Annual Citizenship Week November 13-19, 2011: Celebrating the Many Faces of Houston.
Citizenship Week will underscore how our diverse ethnic and immigrant communities are integrated into the life of our city and how the richness of their traditions and values promotes social cohesion and builds more secure and vibrant neighborhoods. Numerous community and faith based organizations, businesses, educational institutions and grassroots groups have planned events and programs throughout the city to celebrate the common theme of what it means to be a Citizen of the City of Houston: a Houstonian.
