We are thrilled to announce that One America’s Director of Education & Integration Policy Roxana Norouzi will join us on “Tahmina Talks Immigration” on Desi 1250 am at 10am on May 30th 2017 at 10am PST.
Roxana Norouzi has over 12 years of experience in advocacy and social justice work with immigrant and refugee populations. Currently, she is the Director of Education & Integration Policy for OneAmerica, Washington State’s largest immigrant rights organization, where she focuses on closing the opportunity gap through local and state policies and programs that support integration of immigrant children and families. In addition to her role at OneAmerica she is also a clinical faculty member at the University of Washington’s Masters of Public Health Program. Roxana is the Board President of the Seattle Globalist, a global to local news media platform, serves as Vice-President of the Children’s Alliance Board of Directors and is an appointee to the City of Seattle’s Immigrant and Refugee Commission. In 2010, after earning her Masters in Social Work at the University of Washington, Roxana was awarded the Bonderman Fellowship which allowed her to travel to twenty countries exploring and reporting on post-conflict regions, migration trends, and identity. Roxana is fluent in Farsi (Persian) and her experience as a first generation American informs her passion and commitment to education equity and immigrant justice.
Under Roxana’s leadership, One America was able to help pass a Washington State Dual Language bill. She will discuss the bill on the show and much more.
