Urban Poverty Forum: Immigration Equity says
Immigrants have a long history of contributing to society in a positive way. So why does immigration equity remain an elusive principle in the United States? For many immigrants, savage rhetoric, violence, poverty, and other roadblocks cast a shadow over their American landscape. Local organizations will explore grassroots efforts to alleviate hardships among immigrants in this annual event, which sustains a dialogue among diverse community voices around the systemic issues of urban poverty. Featured speakers include Silvia Gonzalez, popular educator at Casa Latina; Mahnaz Kourourian Eshetu, executive director of Refugee Women’s and Family Alliance (ReWa); and Maru Mora-Villalpando, CEO of Latino Advocacy, LLC. Moderator Misael Fajardo-Perez, mission developer at Celebration Lutheran Church; and translator Cariño Barragan, campaign organizer at Casa Latina will also participate in the program.
