About the co-hosts:

Anisa Abeytia regularly worked with members of Congress, the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), the Department of State and United States Agency for Aid and Development (USAID) in the fields of humanitarian diplomacy, immigration, and US-Syria policy. She organised round table discussions between DHS and Syrian American communities nationwide and met with Secretary of DHS, Jeh Johnson where she was able to secure the continuation of Temporary Protective Status (TPS) for Syrians. Anisa played a pivotal role in coordinating with the Chairman of the Congressional Foreign Affairs Committee to influence USAID to become the largest donor for Syria, and the United Nations to change their policy to allow smaller NGOs to deliver aid inside Syria. She was invited by the International Rescue Committee (IRC) to advise on the viability of relocating Syrian refugees to the Greater Los Angeles Area. She also met with and advised the governments of Turkey, Norway, Sweden and Germany on refugee integration. Her work was published in The Hill, UNESCO Policy Brief Series, The Middle East Monitor and The New Arab. She received her Master's degree from Stanford University and is currently a graduate student at the University of San Francisco in Migration Studies. Anisa's desire for systemic justice drives her passion for policy. Anisa is GRN’s Think Tank Programme Co-ordinator.
