Partnership for the Public Good

  • Coordinated and organized “Working Successfully with Immigrants and Refugees” training focusing on language access issues for service providers working with refugees and immigrants, which had a turn-out of 100 community members.
  • Created and edited six Cultural Fact Sheets to inform the community about numerous ethnic groups.
  • Updated a brief outlining various statistics and descriptions of the local refugee and immigrant community.
"This internship has surrounded me with people who will stay up until four in the morning debating reforms of affirmative action or the systematic oppression of minorities because we care. Because we notice. Because we really want to be the ones to help it change."
