Join us on Tuesday, October 19, when Darci Asche, longtime development director of the New American Consortium for Wellness and Empowerment and HCSCC member/collaborator, explores the history and rhetoric of our current refugee crisis. With more than 85 million people currently displaced around the world, including more than 25 million people with refugee status, Darci discusses the reasons these people have fled their homes, who they are, and how our communities have responded to them.
Audience members are encouraged to submit questions throughout the presentation via Zoom or Facebook. Darci will address them during a moderated Q&A period at the end.
“What is a Refugee?” is offered in conjunction with our current exhibition from Studio Art Quilt Associates, “Forced To Flee.”
