Refugees in STL: Four Professionals Share Their Perspectives

Thursday, 06 April, 2017

A panel discussion intending to give a holistic overview of what people have done and can do to be involved in refugee immigration into St. Louis will be held from 2 to 4 p.m. Thursday, April 6, at the Center for Global Citizenship.

Our guests are St. Louis-based professionals who have all involved themselves in immigration with very different approaches:

  • James Hacking of Hacking Law practice, a St. Louis-based immigration law firm;
  • Sarah Kendzior, a freelance journalist and expert witness who has investigated and published on the crisis;
  • Dzemal Bijedic, a chaplain with the St. Louis Police Department and founder of House of Goods;
  • A representative of the Missouri chapter of the Syrian American Medical Society, which provides care for refugees in St. Louis.

Following a discussion period, the panel will field questions from the audience.
