International Connections Luncheon: Christina Bruce-Bennion

Join Albertsons Library and International Connections to welcome and hear Christina Bruce-Bennion's talk: The Global becomes Local--Welcoming Refugees to our Community.

Date: February 19th
Location: Student Union Building, Lookout Room.
Time: 12:30 - 1:30 pm

Events around the world often seem disconnected from our lives, but those events may cause people from other nations to move to Boise through the refugee resettlement program. This session will present information about refugees in Boise: who they are, why they are here, how they get here, and how their presence impacts our community.

Presenter Christina Bruce-Bennion is the Director of the Agency for New Americans, a refugee resettlement agency in Boise. She has been with the agency for over ten years, and has served as Director for almost 9 years. She has worked with refugees both domestically and overseas in various capacities including case management and women's and youth programs. She holds a Master's degree from Boston University.
