The panel will be moderated by Church World Service Sponsorship Developer Joanna Schiestl and human rights attorney Amy Greensfelder, who will give a holistic view of the refugee and asylum seeking legal and resettlement processes. Ms. Greensfelder and Ms. Scheistl will also be available after the event to discuss internship and volunteering opportunities. Lunch will be served.
