Jan 21: Seeking Refugee: Forced to Flee
A refugee camp simulation
Join us on Saturday, January 21st for a unique, eye-opening experience on what it is like to enter a refugee camp. While no simulation can give you the full sense of the refugee experience, this simulation will help you to better understand the situation faced by refugees around the world. Of the 65.3 million forcibly displaced people worldwide, 21.3 million are refugees.
Immerse yourself in the difficulties and frustrations experienced by refugees throughout the process of resettlement at St. James Immigration Assistance's refugee simulation: Seeking Refuge: Forced to Flee. Participants will gain insights into the complexities of the process through a simulation facilitated by St. James Staff and volunteers.
10 am to 12:30 pm - St. James Cathedral Hall, 804 9th Ave, Seattle. Space is limited, and registration is required. You can register by emailing Christopher Koehler at firstname.lastname@example.org.
