Many of those who live in Brooklyn today came escaping persecution in their native countries. But what are their experiences once here? Against the backdrop of the Syrian refugee crisis, join Jarrett Murphy, Executive Publisher of City Limits, as he moderates a discussion with a panel of engaged experts, including Eileen Reilly, Director for Refugee Services and Workforce Development at CAMBA, Zeinab Eyega, Founder and Executive Director of Sauti Yetu, an advocacy organization for African women and families in NYC, and representatives from the Russian Jewish and Albanian communities.

Offered in partnership with “Celebrating the City: Jane Jacobs at 100.”
