Did you know: 1 in 10 Columbus residents are foreign born? Over 16,000 refugees have settled here? Ohio is home to 5,200 registered DACA recipients and 13,000 additional Dreamers who are eligible?
Come learn about our free six-month development program that trains young progressive and civic leaders, then join a panel discussion with leaders like City Councilwoman Elizabeth Brown; Human Services Chamber of Franklin County Executive Director Michael Corey; and Virginia Nunez, Co-owner and COO, Bottoms Up Coffee Co-Op and AVANZA Business Solutions. We'll talk about how Central Ohio is and should be responding to the needs of the immigrant, refugee, and New American populations as they come under assault from the federal government and as progressive local leaders fight back to protect and support them. 
There is plenty of parking around and in the Foundry at Jeffrey Park.
