South Asian Summit 2007
9:00 am - 5:00 pm
The South Asian Summit will be a national convening of South Asian organizations and advocates, including lawyers, service providers, students and community leaders. The goals of the summit are to: create a forum for advocates and students to learn about emerging issues affecting the community through workshops and discussions; develop a policy platform around civil and immigrant rights issues affecting the community; build skills related to working with communities that span generation, ethnicity, and religion, message development; and organizational capacity-building; and meet with DC-based governmental and legislative liaisons who outreach to immigrant communities.
The Summit will provide a unique learning opportunity for the student community at the Washington College of Law. Students will be able to network with advocates from around the country and participate in workshops and skills-building sessions that will enable them to identify a range of career opportunities, hone their own skills to serve the South Asian community, and develop relationships with advocates in the community.
