Refugees Welcome reception to be held in Little Arabia after SCOTUS travel ban decision

The US Supreme Court today ruled President Trump’s travel ban on six Muslim-majority countries can go fully into effect. In the aftermath of this decision, advocacy for new immigrants and refugees is not an option, but an absolute necessity.

Join the Arab American Civic Council and Activate Labs for a Refugees Welcome Reception and Community Forum to uplift the voices of those most impacted by the current volatile political climate!

We are bringing refugee families with elected officials, under one roof, to speak about the challenges of integration, and the resources available to refugees and immigrants in the Greater LA area. We hope that this event not only help shift the refugee narrative from fear and hate to love and empathy, but also pave the way for policy change.

Confirmed elected officials speaking at the event:

  • State Senator Josh Newman
  • Anaheim Mayor Pro Tem James Vanderbilt
  • Trustee Al Jabbar, Anaheim Union High School District
  • Trustee Walter Muneton, Garden Grove Union School District
  • Anaheim City Council Member Dr. Jose Moreno

Join us as we share a meal with refugees and engage in a meaningful, productive discourse on issues related to the Travel Ban, Islamophobia, TPS, hate crimes, integration, deportation, family reunification, and more!

When: Saturday, December 16 from 2:00 – 4:00 PM
Where: Olive Tree Restaurant (518 S Brookhurst St, Anaheim, CA 92804)
