Refugees and Minnesota History

Refugees displaced by war, religious persecution, and genocide have resettled in Minnesota for more than a century. However, in recent years, fears around national security, limited resources, and the potential impact of newcomers on national identity have caused the US to accept fewer refugees. Attendees will explore the history of refugees in Minnesota and exchange ideas about these issues today. Dialogues led by staff trained in facilitation by the International Coalition of Sites of Conscience.
