Our partners with the Latino Leadership Network, Washington Immigrant Network, along with Results Washington are sponsoring a free workshop Sept. 27 on supporting colleagues who have been impacted by immigration issues.
The The current climate in the U.S. regarding immigration impacts many people in numerous ways. The people who are impacted are likely to be suffering silently with fear and worry.
This gathering is co-hosted by LLN and WIN leaders Marlene White and Christine Stalie as well as María Sigüenza, Executive Director of the state Commission on Hispanic Affairs.
