Conversation Project: The Space Between Us

Immigrants, Refugees, and Oregon

April 17, 2019 | 8:00 a.m. | Blue Mountain Community College

2411 NW Carden Ave., Pendleton OR 97801

Global displacement is on the rise, thanks to intractable conflicts, economics, and climate change. Oregonians have and will continue to see the results of international migration in our neighborhoods. In this conversation, Manuel Padilla, who has worked with refugees in Haiti, Chad, and Washington, DC, asks participants to consider questions of uprootedness, hospitality, identity, perception, and integration and how we might build more informed, responsive, resilient, and vibrant communities.
