Support the independent voice of Denver and help keep the future of Westword free.

Before the refreshments in the basement but after federal judge Christina M. Habas fervently waved a pocket-sized Constitution during her speech, 76 people became naturalized citizens of the United States during a Tuesday morning ceremony at the Denver Central Library.

Of the 76 people, they came from 39 countries, said library representatives. The ceremony is held annually in the library's Schlessman Hall. See a video below.

Keep Westword Free... Since we started Westword, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Denver, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Denver with no paywalls.
