22sep10:00 amCrucial Conversations – Refugees in Minnesota

Event Details

Refugees displaced by war, religious persecution, and genocide have resettled in Minnesota for more than a century. However, in recent years, fears around national security, limited resources, and the potential impact of newcomers on national identity have caused the US to accept fewer refugees. Join a small group conversation to explore the history of refugees in Minnesota and exchange ideas about these issues today.

Dialogues are led by staff trained in facilitation by the International Coalition of Sites of Conscience.
