Lunch Break Teach-in: A Refugee's Journey

You're invited to join the IRC in Charlottesville for a brown-bag teach-in at the Central Library. Christine Mahoney, Professor at the University of Virginia's Batten School and author of Failure and Hope: Fighting for the Rights of the Forcibly Displaced will discuss the U.S. Refugee Resettlement Program and the Trump Administration's refugee ban. Topics will include where these refugees come from, what displacement looks like, the many components involved in resettlement, and finally, hopes for the process of starting over in America.
