Over the last three decades, Minnesota has welcomed more than 95,000 refugees and is now home to some of the largest Hmong, Somali and Liberian communities in the United States. Join us for a discussion about refugee resettlement in Minnesota, where we'll answer questions such as: Who is a "refugee"? What’s the refugee journey to Minnesota like? What’s the transformative impact of refugee communities in Minnesota? What's the future of refugee resettlement with President Trump's travel ban? How can I get involved? Speaker Molly Hayes was most recently Program Director at the International Institute of Minnesota, where she oversaw workforce development and education programs for New Americans (refugees and immigrants) across the Twin Cities. Previously, Hayes was a U.S. State Department foreign policy advisor focused on the Middle East and Africa.
