At the present time there over 22 million refugees worldwide registered with the United Nations. The United States welcomed nearly 45,000 refugees last year, and in the past year over 300 refugees were resettled in the Cincinnati area. While refugees are among us, in many cases they may be invisible and their voices not heard. This program offers the opportunity for us to hear the voices of women refugees living in Southwest Ohio. Invitations have been made to refugees from a variety of areas including Bhutan, Burundi, Iraq and Syria. By hearing refugee voices Southwest Ohio moves closer to becoming a welcoming community for refugees.
This event is open to the wider community. Sponsored by the Office of the Regional Director of Diversity and Multicultural Services and the Regional Associate Dean of Student and Academic Success.
