Let’s Talk About The Refugee Crisis: A Panel Discussion (Austin)

May 3 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

This will be an awesome panel of folks who work very closely to this cause speaking about what issues most affect folks in the Austin community who have been touched by resettlement and what you can do to get involved.

Our moderator is:
– Jessica Goudeau- writer who has written about about refugees and issues of representation in The Atlantic, Washington Post, and Vox, amongst others, and is currently writing a book about refugees who resettled in Austin

Our panelists are:
– Amitiss Mahvash- Employment Program Manager at Caritas of Austin
– Jennifer Keys Adair, Phd.- Associate Professor at The University of Texas at Austin School of Education
– Adi Pavlovic- refugee of the Bosnian war and volunteer at Refugee Services of Texas – Austin

This will be as much an opportunity for you to learn more as it is an opportunity to get together with some good folks and talk about how we can make an impact together!
