Dec. 5, 2018
Alemayehu G. Mariam, CSUSB professor of political science and chair of the Ethiopian Diaspora Trust Fund, participated in a news conference in Washington, D.C. earlier this month with members of the trust fund advisory council. The group discussed its objectives, current fundraising status and future plans to engage Ethiopians who live abroad.
