Celebrate Constitution Week with CAC
Tuesday September 16, 2014 at 7 pm at a Center Forum held at the Elmhurst Public Library
Constitution Week is here!
Each year CAC hosts a forum during Constitution Week that highlights an individual who has stood up for their beliefs and has been unwavering in their commitment to uphold First Amendment protections as guaranteed in the U.S. Constitution.
On Tuesday September 16th CAC welcomes Qasim Rashid, a vocal human rights activist and author of The Wrong Kind of Muslim, an autobiographical personal journey into his heritage and religion as a vehicle into the history and ongoing phenomenon of faith-based persecution and target-killings in Pakistan - starting with a childhood bullying incident in Chicago.
Mr. Rashid's remarkable personal story and first-hand experience demonstrates the importance of the First Amendment's Free Exercise of Religion Clause to American democracy.
