From L/A to Africa: Exploring Refugee Resettlement in Reverse

Nov 22, 2013— 12:00 pm

_MG_0832For our November Great Falls Forum program, we’re presenting L/A native, Cheryl Hamilton to talk about the current state of African refugee resettlement to the U.S.  This program will take place on Friday, Nov 22 from 12:00 noon to 1:00 p.m.

Cheryl played a key role in Lewiston/Auburn in the early 2000′s working for the cities of Portland and Lewiston helping to welcome the first waves of east-African refugees to our cities, and helping us all better understand and connect with our newest neighbors.  For the last few years, Cheryl has been working for RefugePoint, an international NGO that finds solutions for the world’s most vulnerable refugees, where she currently serves as their Associate Director for External Relations.

The Great Falls Forum is a monthly speaker series co-sponsored by the Sun Journal, Bates College and LPL.  The programs are brown-bag lunch events that are free and open to the public.  Coffee, tea and bottled water are available at the lectures.

For more information on this program, contact the LPL Adult Services Department at (207) 513-3135 or LPLReference@LewistonMaine.gov
