Heads up, Humboldt:
While the county's masking mandate has been lifted, Public Health is still strongly recommending masking indoors in public, social distancing and "avoiding crowds and poorly ventilated spaces." COVID-19 is still with us, so be sure to check the protocols at event venues.

Syrian Refugees: Escaping the Horrors of War, Coping with World Apathy

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!
