Summer Benefit

We are delighted to announce that Summer Benefit 2022 will return to Aspen’s Hotel Jerome on Thursday, July 14. Join us for an informative and entertaining evening featuring 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. Stay tuned for tickets and event details!

Summer Benefit is English In Action's major fundraiser of the year and relies on the support of local individuals and businesses to succeed. As a sponsor or an underwriter of the event, you or your business will have the opportunity to engage with other local leaders and expand your organization’s visibility among a valley-wide audience through English In Action’s promotional materials. Want to get involved? Please contact Events Manager Rachel Schmidt at rachel@englishinaction.org for more information about the benefits of sponsorship.

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).
