Discussing ‘The Refugee Journey in 2018’

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? Head to the Shoreview Library on Tuesday, Sept. 4, at 7 p.m. 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 in Minnesota and what the future holds for refugee populations around the world. The presentation will be followed by time for questions. 

Presented in partnership with Do Good Roseville and the League of Women Voters Roseville Area. The program is funded by the Friends of the Ramsey County Libraries. Admission is free and the program is open to all. The library is located at 4560 Victoria St. N. in Shoreview.
