Refugee Awareness Week: Panel & Workshop at UCI

Panel: “A Critical Discussion on the Global Refugee Crisis”

Workshop: “Making a Difference for Refugees Locally”

In today’s polarized society, the word “refugee” has become increasingly politicized. Through Refugee Awareness Week, we hope to address misconceptions about refugees by understanding the processes of war, persecution, and other mechanisms of displacement that have forced an unprecedented 65.6 million people from their homes. We also hope to humanize the word “refugee” by sharing and understanding refugee stories, and by celebrating and enhancing their contributions to their host communities.
