MEET CARLOS & ANABEL
Carlos and Anabel arrived as a couple at Concord United Methodist Church for citizenship classes right before the pandemic forced closure. Anxious to become citizens for themselves and the sake of their two small children they entered into the classes fully. Suddenly TIES was forced to suspend classes with only 3 left to finish. Knowing how important it was for the students, the coordinators found a safe place to continue with social distancing, mask wearing and hand sanitizing stations. Carlos and Anabel completed the course even under these difficult circumstances, passed their interviews and took the oath. It involved 3 trips to Nashville in a few days time but they did it! Now they will vote for president of the United States for the first time.
