Watch the Panelists Discussion

Uptown Church and Uplift Community High School co-sponsored a forum of panelists to speak about the global refugee crisis. The panel includes Mike Clark from Global Aid Pro, Joanna Maravilla from the Office of Language and Cultural Education, and Jims Porter from Refugee One.

The conversation is centered around answering three questions: What is happening around the world causing people to flee their homelands? How is our country welcoming people and what is happening at our borders? What does resettlement and the road to self-reliance look like in our city and neighborhoods?
