For the past 10 years, Soccer Without Borders has been fortunate to serve newcomer refugee, immigrant,
and asylee youth across the United States, building a more inclusive and peaceful world through the sport of soccer. On October 27, Soccer Without Borders Oakland will be hosting a memorable 10 year anniversary celebration at the Impact Hub in Oakland, CA.
The event will feature a new short film about our work with newcomer youth, directed by Silas Hagerty, produced by Ryan Hawke, and narrated by Ethan Hawke. Following the film, there will be a panel discussion featuring Hel Say and Ravis, two refugee alumni of Soccer Without Borders, moderated by former BBC journalist Mike Geddes. The evening will also include great music and food from around the world and a chance to connect with Soccer Without Borders alumni and members of the sport for development community.
We are thrilled to welcome special guests Sam Mewis, USWNT member and standout for the Western NY Flash (2016 NWSL champions), Diana Gameros, performer/singer from Ciudad Juarez, and Joe Cannon, former San Jose Earthquakes player, as we celebrate 10 years of playing for change!
