Refugee Resettlement Under the Current Administration

Date: Tuesday, August 14, 2018

Time: 6:00-8:00 p.m.

Location: Minnesota Literacy Council, 700 Raymond Avenue, Suite 180, St. Paul, MN 55114

Refugee resettlement to the United States has been slashed over the last year and the number of new refugees entering the country is at a historic low. How are refugee resettlement groups navigating the political turmoil to help refugees start over in a new community?

Join us to learn what refugee status means, how refugees are getting to Minnesota today and how the International Institute of Minnesota is navigating administrative roadblocks to help resettle and welcome hundreds of refugees. Guest speakers will guide participants through the refugee journey, from life in the refugee camp to the details of the resettlement process. They will also talk about how newcomers are adjusting to their new lives here in Minnesota and what the future holds for refugee populations around the world. The presentation will be followed by time for Q&A.

This is a free event, but we ask that you please register in advance. CEUs are available.
