SCRANTON — The Greater Scranton Interdependence Day Committee and the United Way of Lackawanna County will host a panel discussion on “Immigration, Community and Interdependence” from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. Monday, Sept. 12 at the Scranton Cultural Center, second floor.
A discussion panel will include: Michael Hanley, chief executive office of the United Neighborhood Centers and recipient of the Interdependence Day Award; Adnan Herbawi, MBA graduate from The University of Scranton from Palestine; Elista Neshkova, a nurse from Bulgaria, and Sonya Saner, program director of Catholic Social Services. The panel will be moderated by Sandra Myers, co-founder of Interdependence Day.
Interdependence Day was launched on Sept. 12, 2003 in Philadelphia. The date was deliberately chosen as a post 9/11 symbol of regeneration, as a time to reflect on the tragedy of the incidents of terror, not only in the United States, but all over the world, and to ask the question, “What next?”
