Citizenship Delay Workshop at Mosque Foundation
March 25, 2006
TOPIC - Citizenship Delay Project
SPEAKER - Christina Abraham, CAIR-Chicago; and a representative from the Arab American Action Network
WHEN - Saturday, March 25 at 8:30 pm
WHERE - Mosque Foundation, 7360 W 93rd St. Bridgeview, IL, 60455
WORKSHOP DESCRIPTION - The workshop will first explain to the community what the process is after one applies for citizenship and takes the interview. We will explain all of the factors behind the lengthy delays of perhaps thousands of Muslims who have applied for citizenship. The talk will also explain the legal options of those who have been waiting for a long amount of time to take their oath ceremony, what CAIR-Chicago, AAAN, MIHRC, and attorney David Berten are planning to address the issue, and how the Muslim community can participate in this project. We will also perform intake on-site for members of the community who wish to discuss their experience of citizenship delay to see how we can help.
