Here's The Story Of One Syrian Family That Resettled In Chicago

CHIRP Radio produced this report in September.

"The civil war in Syria drove the Adris family from their home. The war claimed three family members. After a three-year wait, they were able to resettle in Chicago thanks to the Syrian Community Network, and Suzanne Akhras Sahloul, who runs that organization as a volunteer."


This is the same family that was at the city council meeting on Wednesday; they were also featured in theTribune in September.

* The [Wednesday] Papers: Why I want to hug a woman wearing a hijab today.
