About this Event
Join Refugee Women’s Network (RWN) as we engage in personal narratives of refugees in the community and amplify the importance of standing in solidarity with the Black Lives Matter movement. We will discuss RWN’s work during this time and have speakers from the community educating us on the intersectionality of refugees and the Black Lives Matter movement.
As we all continue to educate ourselves, join us in better understanding our community and our neighbors’ experiences so we can empathize and be better allies to our refugee, immigrant, Brown and Black communities.
