Immigrant Women in America (in Greensboro)

Every Monday I receive the "FaithAction e-News" email newsletter from FaithAction International House. This week's e-newsletter highlights one of the YWCA's lunch series on women's issues:

INVISIBLE BUT ESSENTIAL: Immigrant Women in America

An Asian face, a Caribbean accent, or the echo of Spanish reveals that millions of Americans entrust their most precious treasures--their children, their parents, their homes--to immigrant women. Are they invisible to us? Do we undervalue their contribution?

Tuesday April 27th, 12 noon (no charge)

YWCA of Greensboro
4002 Spring Garden Street, Suite E
Between Wendover and Market Streets

I plan on being there. I'll see some people I know and get the itch to join the discussion.
