Thursday, April 27, 2017
6 p.m.- 8 p.m.
Maple Neighborhood Center Multi-Purpose Room 3301 37th Ave. near Fruitridge & Hwy 99 Immigration Forum. Keeping with the LWVUS's new Immigration position, LWV of Sacramento County is hosting an immigration forum. Our aim is to educate ourselves and our community about issues facing immigrants and refugees in Sacramento. What does it mean to be a "sanctuary" city, church, school? We have a short film, and a great panel planned, including a student "dreamer" with an incredible story, Gaby Trejo, from Area Congregations Together and others. Dr. Rhonda Rios Kravitz, retired dean from Sacramento City College, will moderate. Dr. Kravitz was a panelist for our Redistricting, Ethics and Transparency public forums and participates with us on the Voter Registration and Civic Engagement group formed by Justice Cruz Reynoso.
