The East Bay Refugee Forum, a coalition of service providers and government agencies, Refugee Transitions and Upwardly Global, East Bay Refugee Forum member agencies, provide a glimpse of refugees’ journey to the United States and explore one community’s model to give refugees a common voice and empower them to become contributing members of the community. The presentation includes a brief overview of the distinction between refugees, asylees, and immigrants, as well as the process of resettlement – how and why refugees come to the United States. The presenter highlights the work of Refugee Transitions and Upwardly Global, local non-profit education and employment providers, and shares the story of successfully resettled refugees in the Bay Area. A conversation about ways to get involved and mobilize support for refugees in the community concludes the presentation.
