Jessica Yu has been appointed to serve on the Seattle Immigrant and Refugee Commission. The 15-person Commission was created as a result of the city’s 2007 Immigrant and Refugee Report and Action Plan. The Commission advises the mayor, city council and city departments on ways that city services can be enhanced, improved and made more accessible for immigrants and refugees.
The Commission is also charged with encouraging dialogue and understanding between and among the various immigrant and refugee communities and the larger Seattle community, advocating on their behalf and helping to provide outreach and community feedback to the Office of Immigrant and Refugee Affairs.
According to Yu, “I am honored to have this opportunity to serve the people and community I care deeply about. I look forward to utilizing my experience as an immigrant attorney to be the voice between the public and the city government.”
Yu will serve a two-year term, with the option of reappointment.
