    What:
    Come and learn about YOUR RIGHTS regarding harassment at the airport, employment discrimination, and FBI Interviews . Attorneys will be present to answer questions.

    Why:
    More than six years after 9/11, many immigrants, particularly those of Middle Eastern descent, still face discrimination such as harassment at the airport upon re-entry into the United States, FBI interviews, delayed naturalization applications, and unequal treatment at work. Certainly, with the recent rise in tension between the United States and Iran, Iranians of all generations are also subject to such discrimination. Asian Law Caucus has important information for the Iranian Community regarding YOUR RIGHTS!

    **** "An earnest, frequently funny comedy. Shiva Rose (Layla) excels as a self-reliant damsel in distress worth rooting for." - Lisa Nesselson, VARIETY.

    ++++ Hollywood actress Shiva Rose (Layla) received 'Best Breakthrough Performance' Award. With over 20 reviews, Shiva Rose is now the highest, consistently praised Iranian actress in America.

    ++++ David & Layla was featured in May 2007 in Panorama at the Verona/Italy International Amore Film Festival, as a modern interpretation of Romeo & Juliet.

    **** "A bold, politically relevant film against impossible odds." - Harold Pinter, 2005 Nobel Laureate, Academy Award nominee Writer.

    ***** "Take the star-crossed romance of Romeo & Juliet, add some graphic sexual humor a la The 40-Year-Old Virgin and toss into the crucible of Middle East politics, and you get David & Layla, a frothy romantic comedy. Every scene Callie Thorne is in crackles with unhinged hilarity. David & Layla is suffused with the warmth and passion of the filmmaker Jay Jonroy." - Ann Hornaday, The Washington Post.

    **** "Let's call for a ceasefire in the hostilities in the Middle East, require all combatants to take a 108-minute break and watch this movie. A perfect companion piece to the Oscar-winning short film 'West Bank Story.' " - Keith D. Cohen, Jewish Chronicle.

    **** "A superior variation on My Big Fat Greek Wedding, with unexpected insights." - Joe Baltake, Independent Film Critic.
