Welcoming Refugees:
NASHVILLE’S ROLE IN SUPPORTING NEW NEIGHBORS

Nashville has resources that have been in place for decades to greet new neighbors. Grassroots support and programs have most recently been developed specifically to welcome hundreds of Afghan refugees to our city.

This panel is filled with experience and heart for making the transition from the initial welcome to a connected life in the community. Panelists represent those offering resettlement resources and refugees whose personal journeys include leaving home in search of making a new one halfway across the world.

Nashville’s community resources are intended to support self-sufficiency and connection, while also honoring culture and the emotional experiences of resettlement.

Panelists:

  • Tessa Lemos Del Pino, Executive Director, Tennessee Justice for Our Neighbors
  • Sabina Mohyuddin, Executive Director, American Muslim Advisory Council
  • Norma Sadat, New Nashville Neighbor, Staffer at Tri Star Southern Hills
  • Masood Sidiqyar, Afghan-born Nashvillian, Senior Director of Information Security, Vanderbilt University

Moderator:

  • Zulfat Suara, Nashville Metro Council Member at Large, Executive Director of Grants and Contracts at Meharry Medical College, The Women’s Fund Board Member

The Women’s Fund Forum Co-Chairs:

  • Johari Matthews and Zulfat Suara
