Berkeley's Sanctuary Contracting Ordinance: The Michelle Meow Show

Join us as Michelle Meow brings her long-running daily radio show to The Commonwealth Club one day each week. Meet fascinating—and often controversial—people discussing important issues of interest to the LGBTQ community, and have your questions ready.

This week's in-studio guest: Sameena Usman. She will be discussing the Berkeley city council's vote on the Sanctuary Contracting Ordinance, which would prohibit the awarding of city contracts to vendors supplying ICE with data or extreme vetting services.

Usman is a government relations coordinator for the Council on American-Islamic Relations–San Francisco Bay Area. She regularly meets with Bay Area elected officials to advocate for positive legislation and to highlight issues of importance to the community. She conducts interfaith dialogue and works to educate youth and strengthen the American Muslim community.
