World Refugee Day - Panel and Discussion

On UN World Refugee Day the Central Library will be hosting an event for the community to learn about the plight of refugees globally and what the resettlement process is like in the United States.

The evening will begin with people being able to arrive early (starting at 5:45pm) and experience the Za’atari Syrian refugee camp in Jordan through our virtual reality tools. The event itself will start with two short documentary clips, Life On Hold from Amnesty International, and then remarks from the organizations International Rescue Committee and SB Community Aiding Refugees Effort. The remainder of the evening will be a Q&A for the community to engage with panelists about the work they do for and with refugees.
