Refugees Share Their Stories
Since 1980 over 2,500 people have re-settled in the Magic Valley area through the CSI Refugee Program. This has been a successful program of providing a new start for many refugees who have become members of our community. Each of these people have interesting stories about their experiences of having to leave their countries and how they have grown to be members of our Magic Valley community.
The Magic Valley Unitarian-Universalist Fellowship, located at 160 9th Ave East, is hosting a Refugee Stories event on January 23rd from 6 to 8 pm. Representatives of the refugee community will share their journeys along with the courage it required, the sacrifices and adjustments they made to come to the United States for the safety of their families. It is an opportunity for the community to better understand the determination of refugees to be a part of the Magic Valley. This event is free and open to the public and is planned to be the first of several similar events. A reception will be held afterward.
Unitarian-Universalism is a faith tradition that welcomes and stands up for the full rights of all people regardless of race, ethnicity, immigration status, sexual orientation, gender identity, and religion.
