Created Equal: The Civil Rights of Immigrants and Refugees

Bezazian

Description

This panel discussion on the civil rights of immigrants and refugees features three panelists who have been working to improve lives in this community for many years. Daisy Funes, the long-time director of Centro Romero; Suzanne Akhras Sahloul, founder and executive director of the Syrian Community Network, a refugee support network that promotes the spirit of community, family and Syrian culture; and Fred Tsao, the Illinois Coalition for Immigrant and Refugee Rights' senior policy counsel, who provides research and analysis of changes in immigration-related policies and procedures to ICIRR members and allies, and assists with the coalition's legislative advocacy efforts.

The Created Equal film set and public programs have been made possible by a major grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities, as part of its Bridging Cultures initiative, in partnership with the Gilder Lehrman Institute of American History.
