CHANGIA 
 
Pursuant to our call for the right of dual citizenship for all Tanzanians, the Tanzanian Communities in the United States of America and the Diaspora Council of Tanzanians in America (DICOTA) have agreed to file a petition for this cause to the Constitutional Review Parliament that is now taking place in Dodoma, Tanzania through our Representative Honorable Kadari Singo, who is also a member of the our Diaspora Community and who resides in California. With the highest honor, we invite you to support this petition.
 
Honorable Kadari Singo is now attending the Constitutional Review Parliament inDodoma.  After consultation with other members of the Parliament and in seeking their support, and after thorough deliberations on how to bring the issue of dual citizenship to the attention of all members of the above-mentioned Parliament, it was decided that a workshop, training or conference should be arranged to lobby to the members of the Parliament and inform them of the necessity and urgency of their supportive votes when the motion of dual citizenship will be tabled.
 
For that conference, we will need experts on this issue from other parts ofTanzaniaand abroad (including International Office for Migration - IOM) to attend at a very short notice. We will also need an excellent venue and some refreshments. Moreover, the experts on this issue will need to be paid. Hence, we are looking for at least $25,000 dollars to cover expenses for this event. The plan is to run a workshop/seminar for 3 days targeting different groups of MPs for each day.
 
We are certain that if the members of the parliament are made to understand our motion, it will be easier for them to vote for dual citizenship. Dual citizenship is an important right that has been denied to Tanzanians since 1964. Thus, we hope that the workshop or conference will provide the members of the Parliament with an opportunity to understand the overall benefits of dual citizenship and why their votes for this cause are imperative. Moreover, we invite you to think about your interests, family and opportunities offered by dual citizenship.
 
For these reasons, we ask you to support this cause by giving any donations to the following account:
 
The funds obtained will be used to arrange the above-mentioned workshop or conference inDodoma,Tanzania. We need at least $ 25,000 so you may contribute any amount you can afford. If every Tanzanian in theUnited Statescontributes at least $50, we will reach or surpass the amount of $ 25,000.
 
We are grateful that you are supporting dual citizenship for Tanzanians outside their country and we hope through your support, we will be able to achieve this goal.
