Amassing Funds for St. James Immigrant Assistance in Seattle
Organized by: Shirley Hoang
Hello, and thanks for reading. My name is Shirley Hoang, and while I was born here in the United States, my parents were originally from Vietnam. Today, I'd like to highlight the plight of immigrants here in Seattle with the hope that funds received from here will be channeled to the St. James. Immigrant Assistance.
But first, let me quote a line from the Seattle Lines: "About 65 percent of all adult immigrants are not able to converse in English." This is rather worrying news for me because immigrants like this would only be able to work low-wage jobs without seeing much opportunity for income growth. This lower earning power leads to lower consumer spending and lower tax revenue, impacting the economic growth for both the city and state.
Therefore, I strongly urge you, my dear friends, to donate and support my cause as much as you can.
