Come join us for a fun educational day of celebrating New Americans and learning how they enrich our community. During the Immigration Celebration Day! Learn more about immigration and ways to become involved with New Americans in our community. You will experience refugee stories, learn about the trauma of immigration, refugee services, what is happening on the southern border with asylum seekers and the workings of a local asylum seeker hosting program, and participate in workshops that will allow you to learn about cultural competency and engage with New Americans and organizations that work with them. Lunch is catered and the Victory Choir will sing. In addition Artisans for Hope will have their beautiful handmade wares for sale. So come celebrate with us!
This event is in partnership with the Idaho Office for Refugees and the Refugee Speakers Bureau.
