What are we talking about when we talk about "sanctuary"? What is it like for refugees, asylees, and immigrants in Richmond? What does immigration have to do with feminism? 

These are some of the questions that were discussed at the Immigration as a Womxn’s Issue panel at The Broad on September 6th.

Kate Ayers, Executive Director of ReR, moderated a panel of experts on the issue: Delegate Debra Rodman who also serves as an expert witness in asylum cases, Leonina Arismendi from ICE out of RVA, Tamana Radmanish, participant in ReEstablish Richmond programs, and Lana Heath de Martinez, local advocate.

We are grateful to continue to be part of such important conversations!
