On Tuesday, April 18th, at 4:15PM, Saint Ann’s will host Brooklyn in Solidarity–an event organized by a consortium of Brooklyn schools, which will examine a number of critical issues facing immigrants and refugees. The event will commence with a student-led interactive project, and will culminate with a panel discussion featuring five distinguished speakers who bring a multiplicity of voices to questions about community service/activism. The panel will be moderated, but there will also be an opportunity for audience questions. As such, we’re trying to gauge what questions–as broad or as specific as you like–you might have, so we can look to incorporate them into the conversation our moderator will lead. We’re excited to receive the questions/issues you want to hear addressed–and this is a great way of letting us know, especially if you won’t be able to attend the event! For reference, our panelists will be:
—Adama Bah: activist
—Angy Rivera: New York State Leadership Council
—Zainab Abdullah: Arab-American Family Support Center Activist
—Kaberi Banerjee-Murthy: Brooklyn Community Foundation
—Priya Patel: Immigration Legal Team, Lutheran Social Services of New York
