Private: Changemakers - Making LA More Welcoming for Refugees

  • Pasadena, CA United States (map)

Miry leads a conversation with high schoolers at Sequoyah School about how we can activate together to make Los Angeles a more welcoming city for immigrants and refugees.

Topics covered:

  • Reason and purpose of human migration

  • The refugee resettlement system in America - difference between "refugee" and "asylee" status

  • Origin story of Miry's List, our model, our families the gaps we will

  • What resettling refugees face when they arrive

  • How you can help

This event is part of Welcome, Neighbor by Miry's List, designed to make Los Angeles the most welcoming place in America by 2020, in partnership with the Goldhirsh Foundation and Annenberg Foundation.

The Social Innovation Program at Sequoyah School develops students’ desire to be responsible, effective changemakers. The four-year curriculum integrates site visits, systems thinking, and physical prototyping to develop students’ confidence in addressing the pressing social and environmental justice issues of our time.
