Citizenship Delay Workshop at Islamic Society of Northwest Suburbs
February 19, 2006
TOPIC - Citizenship Delay Project
SPEAKER - Christina Abraham, CAIR-Chicago; and a representative from the Arab American Action Network
WHEN – Sunday, February 19, 2006 at 10:45am
WHERE - Islamic Society of Northwest Suburbs, 3890 Industrial Ave. Rolling Meadows, IL, 60008
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, and MIHRC 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.
