As part of our work to create an enduring philanthropic community for all the people of Park City, Park City Community Foundation is hosting a Crest Speaker Series event on April 20, 2018. The event will include a panel discussion with Kate Barber, Enrique Sanchez and Dalia Gonzalez with Bob Richer moderating, surrounding DACA and Immigration in Park City and a light breakfast.

KATE BARBER is senior attorney at Immigrant Legal Services. If there is one thing that Kate has learned, it is that everyone’s situation is different. She trys to understand and analyze the unique aspects of each case and provide clients with various options that fit their unique needs. Kate spent the last three years in private practice. Before that she worked with Catholic Charities of Oklahoma City in the Immigration Legal Services department. Kate has handled removal defense, asylum, SIJs, adoptions, citizenship, consular processing, and many other cases. Kate has represented hundreds of immigrants in proceedings before USCIS, the Immigration Court, the Board of Immigration Appeals, the Administrative Appeals Office, criminal courts in Oklahoma and Utah, and the Department of Labor.

ENRIQUE SANCHEZ has lived in Park City since he was two years old with his mom and dad and 3 siblings. He came to the US with his family as a very young child and has very few memories of his birth place. He graduated from Park City High School in 2016 and is currently attending Salt Lake Community College. Enrique is studying Criminal Justice and while in school he is also getting hands on learning while working at the Park City Police Department as a Technical Specialist. He also works at the PC MARC.

DALIA GONZALEZ is a proud bilingual Latina, Mexican American to be exact, with an immense love of her identity and for everything and everyone that has been a part of her development. Dalia comes from an immigrant family. She grew up in Park City and was the first in her family to attend college. She received a BS in Human Development & Family Studies and International Studies with a Global Health Emphasis from the University of Utah. Dalia calls Park City home and loves to serve her community, especially the youth and parenting adults. Dalia is the Community Educator and Teen Council facilitator for Summit and Wasatch County.
