Description

Explore food from around the world at the 11th Annual YUM: A Taste of Immigrant City on June 10, 2020 (new date as a result of the virus) from 7 PM-9 PM. VIP reception beginning at 6:00 PM.

The evening will include tastes from local immigrant-run restaurants, entertainment, a cash bar, and an awards presentation honoring the important work of José A. Palma from the National TPS (Temporary Protected Status) Coalition and Sabrineh "Sabi" Ardalan from the Havard Immigration and Refugee Clinical at Harvard University.

José A. Palma just returned to Justice at Work after spending a year coordinating the National Temporary Protected Status (TPS) Alliance and leading a national campaign to achieve permanent residency for people protected by TPS. Born in Usulután, El Salvador, José came to the United States in 1998 and has lived in Lynn, MA since 2002.

Sabrineh Ardalan is clinical professor of law at Harvard Law School and director of the Harvard Immigration and Refugee Clinical Program (HIRC). At HIRC, Ardalan supervises and trains law students working on applications for asylum and other humanitarian protections, as well as appellate litigation and policy advocacy.

YUM promotes immigrant-run local restaurants, highlighting contributions of the city's immigrant communities.
