…with Idaho’s Refugee Speakers Bureau
The Refugee Speakers Bureau is bringing the flavors of our stories and our foods to the Wood River Valley for two special events! Read and register below for Friday’s event, or click here to learn about our cooking class on Saturday.
On Friday, April 29, join us for an afternoon of storytelling from 4:30 to 6:00 p.m. to hear from Idahoans who arrived in the U.S. as refugees. Hosted by The Community Library in Ketchum in partnership with The Advocates, this free event is open to everyone of all ages.
The Refugee Speakers Bureau, a program of the Idaho Office for Refugees, was established in 2015 and connects participants with communities around Idaho to share their stories and foster public dialogue. The Idaho Office for Refugees is the state administrator of the refugee resettlement program. We connect new Americans and Idaho communities to enrich lives and create belonging.
This event will also be live streamed on the Library’s Vimeo and available to watch later. Click here to watch.
