Immigration and Refugee Summit After Action Report
One Human Family-QCA and Quad Cities Interfaith, co-sponsors
The PACG Civil Rights Forum worked with our friends at One Human Family and Quad Cities Interfaith to present an educational summit dealing with the problems that both immigrants and refugees face today. "Navigating Complex Policies Within a Broken System" was well-attended.
We held our event at Eastern Iowa Community College in Davenport on Saturday, February 25th and were able to use the school's media equipment to allow one presenter to attend via Zoom.
We were excited to bring together a panel of people who could share the diverse experiences they have working with immigrant and refugee populations. Read about our six panelists here. Their unique backgrounds and experiences made the gathering even more powerful. They shared heartfelt experiences from their own lives and from the work they do to help immigrants and refugees in order to educate the attendees on the various obstacles and challenges faced by these people. After the panelists spoke, the audience engaged in meaningful discussion on ways we can work to make a difference overcoming these challenges and obstacles.
The panelists were well received and the audience was very energized. The Civil Rights forum will be following up on various ideas shared about action we can take.
WQAD sent a reporter to our event and you can view their news story here.
