Ramla Sahid

SCI Mentee

Ramla and her family arrived as refugees to San Diego in 1993 and she realised as young person the systemic and structural barriers faced by refugee women and their families.

She formed the Partnership for the Advancement of New Americans (PANA) to ensure the communities she works with are engaged, visible, and have their priorities reflected in the region’s institutional and democratic processes.

Ramla is seeking to amplify refugee voices to advocate for basic fairness and dignity for all and provides support to communities directly affected by the Muslim Ban including from Iran, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria, and Yemen.
