Seattle has a commission on refugees and immigrants, November meeting coming up

A reader has brought to my attention that there are opportunities for concerned citizens to attend meetings where you can learn more about what is going on where you live and who the principle players are (who are the people in your community calling the shots).
No rent hikes!  What do you think?  Are they getting community organizing training somewhere? You betcha!
 

See our post last year where Somali community organizers protested an effort by the Seattle housing authority to free up some public housing for 9,000 on a waiting list. The housing authority failed. https://refugeeresettlementwatch.org/2014/12/19/seattle-housing-crisis-pay-attention-refugee-welcoming-cities/

 
In Seattle there is the Immigrant and Refugee Commission.  Here is the meeting schedule for the two remaining meetings this year.  Surely they will be discussing how many Syrians will be seeded in Seattle.
In the last few days we reported on opportunities here in Orlando, FL (one of our readers attended!  thank you!) and here in Minneapolis, MN to attend PUBLIC meetings to learn more about what is happening where you live.  To be effective in standing up for your community, you need to understand how refugee resettlement works and who the players are where you live.
