When: Mon., Feb. 27 2017
Join Tony Silvaggio, Department of Sociology; Leena Dallasheh, Department of History; Jared Larson, Department of Politics and Sierra Leash, activist and refugee support to learn about the Syrian refugee situation and what can be done to help. Over five million Syrians have fled their country seeking safety and freedom. As the world copes with the largest humanitarian crisis of our lifetime, the U.S. has played a small part in the efforts to relocate and resettle refugees. Now, there is fear that even this meager involvement will stop, leaving one of our world's most vulnerable populations in limbo. Come learn about the situation, and what you can do to help!
