Mayor's Office of New Americans

Our January meeting took place at Provence on Church Street. It was a cozy, warm lunch discussion with Mohamed Shukri-Hassan. He is Program Director for the American Muslim Advisory Council and recently was appointed by the Mayor of Nashville to serve on the Mayor's New Americans Advisory Council.  
Mohamed was a co-founder of the American Center for Outreach, works as the Welcoming Tennessee coordinator for the Tennessee Immigrant and Refugee Rights Coalition and formerly worked as an Outreach Coordinator for the Metro Public Health Department. He is passionate about helping new Americans settle in and be welcomed to Nashville. 
He was able to share with RCC members some of the programs run out of the New Americans Office including My City Academy which helps new Americans and neighborhood leaders understand how the Nashville government works. 
RCC is open to members from all denominations, and the Nashville group includes Baha’is, Christians, Jews, Muslims, Scientologists, and more.  For further information about the RCC or their next meeting, visit www.religioncommunicators.org.
