February 21, 2017

 

Tuesday, February 21, 2017 - 7:00pm to 8:30pm

King County's immigrants and refugees have made significant contributions to our region's creative spirit, culture, and economy. But for many, there is now fear and uncertainty as President Trump acts on his campaign promises to limit immigration and to crackdown on the undocumented and sanctuary cities like Seattle.

Enrique Cerna from KCTS 9 moderates an important community conversation about the challenges and concerns in our immigrant communities.

Panelists include:

  • Maru Mora Villalpando, Latino Advocacy
  • Simon Okelo, Founder, One Vibe Africa
  • Lola Zakharova, Immigration Attorney; Member, King County Immigration and Refugee Task Force
  • Aneelah Afzali, Executive Director of MAPS-AMEN (American Muslim Empowerment Program)
