Event description
Join us for "One of A Kind" - a conversation with three women who are actively contributing to helping vulnerable women and families in LA.

About this Event

Join us on Thursday, December 12th from 7 to 9 PM for a special evening in support of Miry's List.

Rabia Ahmadi, Carol Gomez, Lauren Siefer, Diamond Moseley and Miry Whitehill will be coming together to discuss the ways that they have carved out for themselves to actively help vulnerable women and families in Los Angeles.

They will be covering topics including the experience and challenges of living and growing in LA as a newcomer, and how we can help women and families in crisis in our own city.

50% of all color sales from this event will be going directly to Miry’s List.

-----

Rabia Ahmadi is the Director of family services at Miry’s List and recently arrived in LA from Afghanistan.

Carol Gomez is the Clinical Director of the Program for Torture Victims Los Angeles. She has been involved in violence against women, immigrant rights, human trafficking and social justice community organizing work for the past two decades in the US and in Malaysia.

Lauren Siefer is a mom and a game show and live event producer. Her role as the Director of Fulfillment on The Price is Right has allowed her to help Miry’s List furnish our new neighbors’ homes with prizes from our promoted partners and prize warehouses. She’s inspired daily by the strong village of women she has met through Miry and her compassionate team.

Diamond Moseley is a change agent who is committed to supporting under-resourced communities and families. After graduating with a Masters in Public Policy, she founded The Impact Project; a social service movement designed to provide opportunities and platforms for people to give back and serve their community. Under the Impact umbrella, Diamond is also advocating and directing a documentary on Bail Reform and the injustices of mass incarceration. Her ultimate goal is to create cohorts of Impact Projects across the country so that everyone has access to equal opportunities and avenues to give back.

This event will be moderated by Miry Whitehill, Founder and Executive Director of Miry’s List.

About Miry's List

Miry’s List is a nonprofit organization founded in July 2016 serving families resettling in America as refugees. Our mission is to make America a more welcoming place for refugees and immigrants by providing mechanisms for people to directly impact their resettling neighbors. Our 5 programs are designed to address challenges that resettling families face starting from the day the plane lands. Our programming is customized to each family’s needs, divided into three chronological tiers that align with the resettlement experience: Survive, Hive, and Thrive. So far, 350 new arrival refugee families have been helped and over 75,000 American people have gotten involved through Miry’s List to make America more welcoming, inclusive, and equitable for families resettling here.
