Please join Women Give San Diego as we explore issues affecting local refugee and immigrant populations in San Diego. The Education Team will lead a panel to discuss recent policy changes that are impacting these populations, as well as the local organizations that are working to help them navigate through these changes. We’ll also look at ways in which WGSD members can help these vulnerable populations, with insight from some representatives from our past grantees/community partners:

  • Elizabeth Camarena, Esq., Associate Director, Casa Cornelia Law Center
  • Ramla Sahid, Executive Director, Partnership for the Advancement of New Americans (PANA)
  • Sahra Abdi, Executive Director, United Women of East Africa
  • Steve Eldred, Senior Program Manager, The California Endowment

Food from the United Women of East Africa will be provided, and we welcome you to invite a guest who would like to learn more about Women Give San Diego!
