A Panel Discussion

International conflict is causing many to look to the United States (U.S) as a safe haven. According to the U.S. Department of State, the country admitted nearly 70,000 refugees in 2015. Cleveland alone has received more than 2,500 refugees since 2008.


As a nation, what is our obligation to these individuals? Is the answer a wall, an open door, or something in between? 


Join us for a Youth Forum Council panel discussion that will look to address the issue of immigration and refugees in America.

 

Panelists include:

Scott Bratton, Partner, Margaret Wong and Associates

Khoon Thomas Kate, Program Coordinator and Board Member of Refugee Response Network, and Refugee from Burma

Tom Mrosko, Director, Migration and Refugee Services, Catholic Charities, Diocese of Cleveland

 

This conversation will be moderated by Youth Forum Council member ‚ÄčKirsten Pomales.

 

Free for high school students. Tickets: $20 members/$35 nonmembers
