Summer Benefit

We are delighted to announce that Summer Benefit 2022 will return to Aspen’s Hotel Jerome on Thursday, July 14 from 5:00 to 7:30 pm. Join us for an engaging evening of drinks and hors d'oeuvres. Hear from keynote speaker Roya Hakakian, author of A Beginner’s Guide to America: For the Immigrant and the Curious. Originally from Iran, Ms. Hakakian is a fellow at Yale and a frequent contributor to The New York Times, The Washington Post, and NPR’s All Things Considered. TICKETS ARE ON SALE NOW! Purchase yours online by completing the form at the bottom of this page.

As English In Action’s 2022 Summer Benefit speaker, Hakakian joins an exclusive roster of prior keynote talent that includes former Secretary of State Madeleine K. Albright (2018-2020), The New York Times’ David Sanger (2019), The National Immigration Forum’s Ali Noorani (2020, 2021), and Francisco Cantú (2021). Our benefit this year is dedicated to the memory of former Secretary Albright, whose generosity to English In Action made a lasting and substantial difference to our work to welcome immigrants from all walks of life to our community. Her indominable and irreverent style lit up our Summer Benefit in 2018. To watch that video and more, visit our YouTube channel.
