Speakers:

Rachel Yanof, Executive Director of Achieve 60AZ. Ms. Yanof will discuss the coalition created to achieve having 60% of Arizonans of working age have a degree or a professional certificate by 2030. Currently, only 42% of adults in Arizona have education beyond a high school diploma. However, in less than five years, nearly 70% of jobs will require education beyond high school. Ms. Yanof will explain what is being done to achieve this goal and help Arizona compete in the jobs marketplace.

Ms. Buck will inform us how this collective group of organizers and volunteers are supporting the asylum seekers and migrants traveling from Central America. They have been granted legal temporary asylum by Homeland Security and All Hands AZ helps them get to their families in order to pursue their asylum case in front of a judge.
