Welcome, Neighbor: Helping Resettling Angelenos is a talk about refugee resettlement in Los Angeles. Participants will grow their understanding of what life is like for resettling families, specifically: How it works, how it feels for families, and how we can help.
Miry Whitehill, founder and executive director of Miry’s List, started Miry's List in July 2016 when a friend introduced her to a family of new arrival Syrian refugees resettling in Los Angeles with kids the same age as her own. Until then, she was a stay-at-home mom and community activist with 10 years experience in digital marketing. She speaks fluent Hebrew and is learning Arabic in the car on an app with her sons.
