Catholic Charities of Louisville will present “Stories of Status,” a panel discussion, at the Speed Art Museum, 2035 S. Third Street, on Aug. 11 from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. The event is free as part of the Speed Museum’s Sunday Showcase.
Lisa De Jaco Crutcher, chief executive officer of Catholic Charities, “will moderate a panel of experts and facilitate storytelling by Louisvillian immigrants to unpack the complicated realities of immigrants in America today,” according to an announcement about the event.
Panelists will include Congressman John Yarmuth, U.S. Representative for Kentucky’s third congressional district; Enid F. Trucio-Hayes, a faculty member at the University of Louisville Brandeis School of Law and nationally-recognized scholar in immigration law; and Rebecca Sim, director of Immigration Legal Services at Catholic Charities.
The event is part of Catholic Charities’ Be Golden initiative, which reminds people to follow the Golden Rule. Be Golden is a year-long campaign that intends to reach across faith traditions and urge compassion for all.
