                          HON. SANDER M. LEVIN

                              of michigan

                    in the house of representatives

                       Thursday, October 10, 2002

  Mr. LEVIN. Mr. Speaker, I rise today to recognize the 21st 
Anniversary Celebration and 10th Annual Awards Banquet of the Chaldean 
Federation of America. On Friday, October 18, 2002 the Chaldean 
Federation will mark more than two decades of service to the Chaldean 
community in Metro-Detroit and one decade of recognizing outstanding 
citizens in their midst.
  Over these many years, I have been privileged to witness the 
establishment and blossoming of this exceptional organization. The 
Federation serves the growing Chaldean community of Metro-Detroit, 
which now numbers over 160,000. Their service to the community has been 
extensive, from employment and social services, to language and 
translation support, to computer training and immigration services.
  For new immigrants, the Federation has served to bridge the cultural 
gap between their native land and that of their adopted home. For 
first, second, and third generation Americans of Chaldean descent, the 
Federation has been a place of education and celebration, keeping alive 
the traditions of the Chaldean homeland.
  In addition to serving the Chaldean community, the Federation has 
been an invaluable resource to our community as a whole. By providing 
cross-cultural education and sensitivity training to schools and other 
groups they have helped to promote tolerance and understanding in an 
increasingly complex world.
  Mr. Speaker, I ask my colleagues to salute the Chaldean Federation of 
America, its key activists and countless volunteers, many of whom I 
have known personally for years. We have been enriched by the Chaldean 
culture and are deeply appreciative of the role that the Chaldean 
Federation of America continues to play in our community.
