Join us for an inclusive evening with a panel presentation, group discussion, and personal action to achieve nonviolent solutions for people seeking refugee status.
Viewpoints forums try to bring the perspectives of a person with lived experience, a facilitator working in the field, an academic, and a policy maker.
There will be a Question and Answer session after the panel presentation, then we will break into groups with each panelist to discuss common themes and solutions. A spokesperson from each group will then report back to everyone.
