Refugees & Resettlement
Wednesday, May 1, 6:30-7:30pm
Prescott High School Performing Arts Center (Auditorium)


Join us for this talk on the refugee resettlement process in the United States. This discussion will help create a greater understanding of the needs of refugees fleeing from persecution and beginning new lives in the United States. Our speaker, Yusuf Abdi, is the Program Director of Refugee Services for Lutheran Social Service of MN and a graduate of North Dakota State University. Yusuf has been affiliated with Lutheran Social Services since 2000, when his family received assistance to resettle in Pelican Rapids. In addition to sharing his own story of life as a refugee and a Muslim, he will share a number of resources. There will be time for Q&A.  In conjunction with this Community Conversation and our Day of Service event on Saturday, May 4, we will be collecting “essentials” and school supplies/backpacks for regional refugees.  Call the Prescott Community Education Office at 715-262-4676 for more details on the Day of Service and/or collection.
