Empowering Citizens

Donation protected
We are Empowering Citizens an up and coming organization located in Milwaukee, WI, founded by two individuals with a passion and dedication to helping the immigrant community. Our story goes beyond a single dream and desire to help, it starts with our founders' immigration journeys and their path to living and achieve their American Dream!

Daniel Gutierrez Ayala a current DACA recipient and Nury Madrigal a naturalized citizen, with a single life dream and desire to make a real change in their community co-founded Empowering Citizens in May of 2019 and officially opened the doors of Empowering Citizens in October of the same year.

​We at Empowering Citizens are dedicated to helping lawful permanent residents prepare for their citizenship civics exam with USCIS by providing citizenship classes.

We are working on obtaining our 501c(3) status as an official non-profit corporation to apply for funding, however, in the meantime, we need your help to continue to provide our students with high-quality citizenship classes in Milwaukee and hopefully expand our services beyond our city.

2020 is a crucial year in many aspects not only a census year but a historically important election year in which we want to ensure that our students become active citizens of the United States, but we can't do this work without your help.

Join us!

If you are interested in helping in another way please email our co-founder and program director at [email redacted]
