The ABC’s of Refugee Resettlement – Think Global, Act Local
April 24, 2022 | 10:00 am - 11:00 am
Michelle Naples, Chief Integration Officer of Lutheran Social Services (LSS) of Wisconsin and Upper Michigan.
(The folks at “Voces de la Frontera” are over-extended by the attention needed for the 2022 May Day event. They have rescheduled their Forum.)
Since 1974, LSS has provided hope and homes for more than 10,000 refugees fleeing war and persecution. Most recently, LSS has been a leader in providing support for Afghan evacuees. First Church member Michelle will provide an overview of refugee resettlement and the distinction between immigrants, asylees, and refugees. She will share information on the refugee resettlement services that LSS provides here in Wisconsin and how you can help. Host: Lorraine Jacobs

For over 50 years, the Sunday Forum lecture series has showcased provocative, sometimes controversial, speakers discussing topical issues of the day: politics, the environment, health issues, the arts, education, and more. The Sunday Forum is held at 10:00 a.m. September through May. Speakers give a 45-minute presentation, followed by questions and brief comments from the audience. The content of Forum lectures does not necessarily express the viewpoint of First Unitarian Society of Milwaukee, but are meant to offer thoughtful topics which our members often pursue further on their own.
