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.

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.
