AAUW-OML (American Association of University Women-Orinda Moraga Lafayette Branch) will host a panel discussion about immigration on Tuesday, March 17, 2020, 9:30-11:30 a.m. (9:30-10:00 a.m. social time) at the Orinda Community Church, 10 Irwin Way, Orinda. The three panelists are currently working or teaching in immigration-related fields and will share information on: the different types of visas and how immigrants get into the U.S.; immigrants’ effect on the U.S. economy, culture and crime statistics; and some insights into at least one major influx of immigrants and the nation and culture that received them. Admission is free and open to the public. For more information, visit our website at https://oml-CA.aauw.net.
The three panelists will be: Dr. Alka Madan, with Bay Area Immigration Services, a firm that provides businesses with immigrant visa petitions and passport services; Mahvash Hassan, an immigrant inclusion consultant; and Dr. Zaida McCall-Perez, a university professor and consultant, trainer and bilingualism advocate.
