Prominent Arab American Lawyer to Join TSA to Advise on Civil Rights

Nawar ShoraBy Allan Lengel

WASHINGTON — The Transportation Security Administration, which is responsible for screening passengers at our nation’s airports, is getting an interesting addition: Nawar Shora, the legal director for the American-Arab Anti-Discrimination Committee.

The Washington Post reports that Shora, who was born in Syria and raised in West Virginia,  is joining the agency as a senior adviser for its office of civil rights and liberties.

“I’m finally practicing what I preach,” Shora,33, told the Post. “It’s about time I cross over to the government and start working within the system. That’s the beauty of our society: Anybody can work with the government.”

Shora has been a prominent voice for the American Arab community and has worked to foster better relations between the community and agencies like the FBI.
