Please join us on Friday April 22nd as iZōsh welcomes Christine Chan Downer as our featured speaker. We have the rare opportunity to hear from a world changer with Ann Arbor roots. With undergraduate degrees in Political Science and Asian Studies from the University of Michigan, and a graduate degree from U of M’s Gerald R. Ford School of Public Policy, Ms. Downer was uniquely prepared to merge education, experience, and passion in her work combating human trafficking in Southeast Asia.

Downer-25-3-EditMs. Downer has worked with several high profile government and non-government agencies and offices.

Currently Ms. Downer serves as a Consultant to International Justice Mission. Join us April 22nd to hear stories from her travels to Asia. Christine and her husband (also a U of M grad) live in Northern Virginia with their two children. Ms. Downer serves as co-leader of her local church’s refugee ministry, which has allowed her family to meet refugees from all over the world resettling in the metro-D.C. area. Christine and her family enjoy return trips to Ann Arbor to visit old friends, spend a small fortune at Zingerman’s, and cheer on their beloved Michigan football team at the Big House.

We’re looking forward to hearing Ms. Downer speak.
