Displaced: Refugee Voices in Conversation

Refugees are forced to flee their home and country due to violence and persecution, and this history continues to inform their perspective for years to come. Opening comments at this event will be offered by Mherdad, a former refugee from Chad who works locally with World Relief. Hear from a panel of refugees, assembled by The Northwest Immigrant and Refugee Health Coalition (NWIRHC), about the way that the current political climate, and President Trump’s executive orders are affecting the refugee community. The panel will also discuss their experiences, both as former refugees and direct service providers for newly resettled families, as well as advocates for the millions of people who are currently in limbo, hoping to find a safe place for themselves and their families. Finally, panel members will give their perspective on how community members can engage with the issues discussed and turn the information learned in this conversation into action.
The panel will be moderated by Andrew Kritovich, a former refugee from Ukraine and Director of International Counseling and Community Services at Lutheran Community Services Northwest.
