This event in Seattle provides a public platform for refugees to describe how they have been impacted by the executive orders, and to share their own stories as refugees resettling in the US.

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. Hear from a panel of refugees, assembled by The Northwest Immigrant and Refugee Health Coalition (NWIRHC), about the way that the current political climate is affecting the refugee community. The panel will 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

Tickets are $5.00, but no one turned away for lack of funds.
