King County has put together a series of videos to help us learn more about the challenges facing immigrants and refugees in King County and across the country.
The videos, recorded as part of a recent Equity and Social Justice event, are now available as a series entitled “Protecting Immigrants and Refugees: Our local response.”
You can watch each of the videos, which feature speakers from five local community organizations, below:
- Aneelah Afzali, founder and executive director of the American Muslim Empowerment Network, a new initiative launched by the Muslim Association of Puget Sound (MAPS)
- Mozart Guerrier, executive director of 21 Progress
- Diane Narasaki, executive director of Asian Counseling and Referral Services (ACRS)
- Hamdi Abdulle, executive director of Somali Youth & Family Club
- Mauricio Ayon, political director of Service Employees International Union Local 6.
