Cornell Welcomes Refugees and the Advocacy Project present
Welcoming Refugees: A Conversation About Refugees in Ithaca and Beyond
Who are refugees? What is life like for them in America? And how can we, as Ithaca residents, advocate for refugees? In this talk, we will tackle these important questions in order to further understand refugees who live among us.
Speakers include Professor Saida Hodžić, Associate Professor of Anthropology and Feminist, Gender and Sexuality Studies, Thamora Fishel, Associate Director of the Southeast Asia Program, and Mursal Rahim, an Afghan refugee and an MPA student.
This event is co-sponsored by the Mario Einaudi Center for International Studies.
