Stories of Refugees event

Last night, the McGovern Center, along with DWU Campus Ministries, hosted “Stories of Refugees”– an event that invited our community to share and listen to stories of refugees in our area.  Our hope was that last night helped to continue a conversation and to put a human face onto an issue that all too often becomes limited to a political or social media debate.

We had a full house for the event and are so thankful to all those who were willing to share a piece of their story!  Check us out on Keloland and the Daily Republic:
