Guest speaker, Cheryl Hamilton, wears many hats – among them she is the Site Director of the International Institute of New England (IINE), as well as a gifted speaker and dynamic storyteller!
There is much information, and misinformation, about refugees and immigrants in the news lately. IINE is one of the region’s largest organizations dedicated to refugee resettlement and immigrant integration and has been welcoming newcomers to the USA for nearly 100 years. We are delighted to welcome Cheryl Hamilton, IINE’s Director of Partner Engagement in Lowell, to share with us about the current situation and important work being done. One of IINE’s clients will join her for the presentation. Together, they will share the personal experience of a recent refugee to the United States and help us understand the wider experience of refugees and immigrants in our area. We hope many people will join us for what promises to be an enlightening presentation and discussion.
