The Space Between Us: Immigrants, Refugees, and Oregon

  • GHCL Annex 7306 Southwest Oleson Road Portland, OR, 97223 United States (map)

An Oregon Humanities Conversation program led by Manuel Padilla. 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.
