(OLLI AT UVM ONLINE DISTINGUISHED SPEAKER SERIES) Refugees and Immigrants in Vermont with Pablo Bose, UVM's Migration & Immigration Scholar, Global & Regional Studies Director

Feb 2, 2022
1:00 pm to 2:00 pm
ONLINE

Refugees have been arriving in Vermont for over forty years. They have helped to transform towns like Burlington and Winooski in multiple ways. But the program has been undergoing profound changes over the past five years - first the deep cuts of the Trump years meant that far fewer people have been arriving, and more recently the program has expanded to new locations (like Brattleboro and Rutland) and to include newer populations (including many Afghans who have arrived this year). I will speak to some of the opportunities and challenges as we work to rebuild the refugee program in the US and in Vermont.
