People on the Move: Forced Global Migration
People on the Move: Community Conversations & Art Performance on Forced Global Migration
Thursday, January 25
6:00 – 8:00 PM
Washington Inn Hotel, Oakland
Global refugee crisis has reached epic proportions. The international community has fallen short in creating immediate, sustainable, and just response to accommodate millions of forcibly displaced people around the world. To tackle this global phenomenon we need to understand historical and contemporary dynamics that contribute to the wars, political and economic instability, and increasingly natural disasters related to climate change that force millions to move.
Join the conversation as speakers discuss the issues on hand and the policies that impact the lives of millions of people on the move around the world.
