COMMUNITIES’ INTEGRATION – HOMELAND, USA

Arlington Public Library

DOORS SHUT AT 6:15pm SHARP

Embracing American Ideals; Promoting and Protecting the American Dream

The meaningful contribution of groups and organizations to integrate immigrant and minority communities needs to be emphasized. Groups and organizations face a special challenge and a specific responsibility different from that of the State and their own individual missions.

INDUS - Mobilizing People’s Power has organized this session to shed light on several integration issues of prime interest to Pakistani and other minority communities. The emphasis is on dialogue, being responsible citizens, following in the footsteps of other successful communities, and how Pakistani and other South Asian communities can secure their place as an integral part of American society while keeping alive their unique cultural identities. This event will help identify challenges and opportunities for diverse ethnic cultures to strengthen American society.

During the interactive session participants can contribute their ideas and experiences for making the South Asian community’s presence a strong and vibrant societal element within its adopted homeland.

Refreshment: Dinner Sandwiches, Holidays Condiments & Soft Drinks.
