June Advocates Group: Domestic Violence in the Refugee Community
Tue, June 6, 2017, 8:30 AM – 11:00 AM EDT
There are currently more refugees worldwide than at any other time in recorded history. 60 million people globally have been displaced from their homes due to conflict and persecution. We hear on the news about Syria, or the latest crisis, and may not have the context to understand the poltical implications and problems, let alone how it may impact our own work. In FY2014, 1,612 refugees were resettled in Indiana. Most of them are from Myanmar (formerly Burma), but as the refugee crisis globally shifts, so do our populations.
Join us in June as Exodus Refugee Immigration's Mental Wellness Coordinator Chelsea Davey will provide a training on working with the refugee population, especially in regard to domestic violence. She will give an overview of the current refugee situation, and talk more specifically about DV in the refugee communities.
A light breakfast with coffee and sign-in will begin at 8:30AM. The program will begin promptly at 9AM.
The venue is wheelchair accessible. Please let us know if we can make any other accommodations.
