Enhancing the quality of life for all refugees from Burma in Minnesota
The Refugee Journey
For many people, the refugee resettlement process is a mystery. If you've ever pondered questions about what refugee status means, how refugees get to Minnesota and who helps them learn to navigate their new world, attend a FREE presentation and discussion on Monday, March 13 from 6:00-7:30pm at the Minnesota Literacy Council (700 Raymond Avenue, Suite 180, St. Paul, MN 55114).
Emily Hipps from the International Institute of Minnesota will guide participants through the refugee journey, from life in the refugee camp to the details of the resettlement process and ways that newcomers adjust to their new lives here in Minnesota. IIMN helps resettle and welcome more than 500 refugees each year and is one of five Twin Cities refugee resettlement agencies.
