CAIR-Chicago Civil Rights Coordinator to Speak at Panel on Muslim Women's Civil Rights

Topic: A Muslim Woman's Guide to Her Civil Rights
Date: Thursday, August 3, 2006
Time: 6:30pm - 8:00pm
Location: Freedom Museum, 445 North Michigan Avenue

Because of her conspicuous religious practices, every American Muslim woman can be a frequent target for discriminatory conduct.

From identification photographs and security screenings to employment and housing discrimination, A Muslim Woman's Guide to Her Civil Rights outlines the religious protections under the First Amendment. Both Muslims and non-Muslims will find the session eye-opening and informative as it delves into limits to faith practices, instances of discrimination and ways for recourse against unjust actions. The program was developed in partnership with the Chicago Advisory Council on Arab Affairs.

Special Guests:

Engy Abdelkader
Civil Rights Attorney

Christina Abraham
Civil Rights Coordinator, Chicago Council on American Islamic Relations

Colleen Connell
Executive Director, Chicago American Civil Liberties Union
Co-sponsored by the Chicago Advisory Councils on Arab Affairs, Immigrant & Refugee Affairs, Asian Affairs, Latino Affairs, and GLBT Issues.
