Event description

Description

Please join Evergreen Community School and The Pedagogical Institute (PI) for an evening about the refugee crisis in Lesvos and beyond. As many of you know, last year, the PI created The Nest, a play space for the youngest refugees on the Greek island of Lesvos. With the support of Evergreen parents, several teachers have had the opportunity to visit and work in The Nest.

To raise awareness about this truly dire situation, we welcome Joel Hernandez, a humanitarian professional who works directly with asylum-seekers in Greece. Joel will talk about the broad policy and political failures that have created and perpetuated Europe's migration crisis. This is a rare opportunity to hear the perspective of someone who not only understands the political complexity but has a wealth of fascinating and personal stories. Join us as Joel shines a light on the political and human face of a crisis that seems to worsen with every passing month.
