7:30 PM - 8:30 PMZoom Videoconference

As Passover, the holiday that reminds us of our people's journey in the desert and our unending quest for freedom, draws near, we are also called to remember the modern day immigrant and the refugee seeker. Please tune in to this program to learn about the status of immigrant and refugee communities, both locally and globally.

The panel will be moderated by Beth Am and Orchard member Dylah Ray, a Mountain View resident who serves on the Human Rights Commission of Santa Clara County and is a member of Emerge CA, a program that identifies and trains women leaders who are committed to civic engagement. 

Our guest panelists will be:

María oversees day-to-day operations at the center, serving as liaison with local employers and the community. Her passion is empowering workers to become members of the community. María is also a graduate of the center's programs.
