Indivisible Greater Vancouver, August Monthly Meeting

ILWU Local 4, Vancouver
1205 Ingalls Street
Vancouver, WA 98660, US (map)



Hi everyone! Our August 4th meeting is this Friday and we have some important agenda items and great speakers. Here's a sneak peak:

The first speaker, Dianna Mendoza (Catholic Services), works with refugee children and finding foster families for them in Vancouver. This fascinating program resettles youth from a wide variety of nations (either residing in refugee camps or immigration detention centers) into licensed, long-term foster homes. All youth are under 18 at the time of resettlement with no one who can care for them.

Gary Seeman, PhD, will speak briefly and then lead an interactive dialogue with attendees addressing the question, "How's this political climate affecting you?" Lots of take-aways here.

Janet Birgenheier, IGV member, will report on the results from Saturday's IGV Strategic Planning Retreat with proposed changes to our charter and focus moving forward. We need your input, so please attend!

In addition, IGV work groups will report out and new actions will be outlined for the August recess. All are welcome, of course, so bring your ideas, neighbors and friends.
