Description

The Eastern Iowa Refugee Summit is open to all Iowans, regardless of citizenship status, interested in learning more about refugees and services available in Eastern Iowa.

Friday, June 16th (8:30-3:30) will begin with a keynote panel addressing how refugees come to and are resettled in Iowa. Agencies will have exhibits advertising services and programs available. Breakout session topics include:

  • Advocating for Refugee Children and Youth
  • Investing in the Local Economy: Refugees and Employers
  • Empowering You for Political Action
  • Becoming an Effective Volunteer & Ally
  • Enhancing Health in Refugee Communities

Saturday, June 17th will be a celebration recognizing World Refugee Day. The Refugee and Immigrant Association will sponsor a morning soccer game (West High School Soccer Field) and afternoon activities that will bring together an array of cultures and traditions to celebrate the interconnectedness of Eastern Iowa and the world.

The $35 registration fee covers admission for both days, including meals and entertainment.

Breakout session and food registration will be sent to the email you provide closer to the event.
