Communications and Community Organizer
We will be joining together to discuss the state of immigration policy, the difficulties facing our undocumented neighbors here in Hawai’i, and what we can do together as a community. We will have a special focus on our Dreamers, those who were brought to the U.S. as children but are undocumented. Aloha Dream Team will be facilitating the event.
Aloha Dream Team, a youth advocacy group with members who have benefited from the DACA program, focuses on outreach efforts and support of immigration policy reform. All are welcome, please join us!
Refreshments will be provided.
There will also be an Action Table for sharing information and handouts.
Interfaith Open Table meets monthly in Honolulu at First Unitarian Church or Harris United Methodist Church, third Tuesday of every month, from 7 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. unless otherwise noted. Each month, one or more speakers address topics of interest to the interfaith community. More information »
