WRAC, the CAL Citizen Scholars Program, the English Language Center and the MSU Library will be hosting an exhibit of the Refuge Lansing project on October 13th and 16th.
Through this special exhibit created by local writers and photographers working with the Refugee Development Center, we welcome members of the MSU and local communities to learn about and celebrate twelve stories of resettlement to the Lansing area. Their experiences as refugees invite dialogue about our perceptions and understanding of the backgrounds, struggles, triumphs, and contributions of those who join our communities from elsewhere. There are now more refugees world-wide than ever before, many fleeing unbearable violence, destruction, and loss. The exhibit itself, and the surrounding events, highlight the positive effects of a more open refugee policy, and of Lansing’s commitment to welcoming those who seek the opportunity to create a new life for themselves and their families.
Friday October 13, 2017, 12-5 p.m.
2nd floor atrium, Wells Hall.
