The Journey of the Refugee

  • Lake Highlands High School 9449 Church Road Dallas, TX, 75238 United States (map)

Who are the refugees? Where are they coming from? What factors pull them to go to another country? What factors push them to leave their country? What happens to them along the way? How are they treated? What roles do race, religion, language and culture play? What is the journey of the refugee? Come to a panel discussion that answers these and other questions. The Junior World Affairs Council invites you to attend a free public talk on the journey of the refugee. Panelists have first-hand knowledge of the experiences of refugees around the world. The event is free and open to anyone interested in refugees, human geography, and global awareness. Seating is limited to 150.
