Refugees Welcome Reception and Community Forum
December 16, 2017 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm
Join Activate Labs and the Arab American Civic Council for a#RefugeesWelcome Reception and Community Forum to uplift the voices of those most impacted by the current volatile political climate!
We are bringing refugee families with elected officials, under one roof, to speak about the challenges of integration, and the resources available to refugees and immigrants in the Greater LA area. We hope that this event not only help shift the refugee narrative from fear and hate to love and empathy, but also pave the way for policy change.
In the aftermath of the Travel Ban instituted by the Trump Administration, advocacy for new immigrants and refugees is not an option, but an absolute necessity. So come join us, as we share a meal with refugees and engage in a meaningful, productive discourse on issues related to the Travel Ban, Islamophobia, TPS, hate crimes, integration, deportation, family reunification, and more!
When: Saturday, December 16 from 2:00 – 4:00 PM
Where: Olive Tree Restaurant (518 S Brookhurst St, Anaheim, CA 92804)
Event is open to the public. Food will be served. Please confirm your attendance on our Eventbrite page: http://bit.ly/2zToqGo
