Refugee Resettlement in Upstate New York

Join us for a panel discussion on the current state of refugee resettlement in Upstate New York, with representatives from resettlement centers in Syracuse, NY - including, Refugee and Immigrant Self-Empowerment (RISE) and Interfaith Works, as well as in Utica, NY - The Center. These three organizations have been collaborating with Dr. Julie Ficarra's Refugee Pathways: from Conflict to Resettlement course, funded through the Mellon Foundation Just Furtures Initiative. Practitioners will share both the challenges and opportunities of resettling refugees in our region, and what the future may hold for resettlement policies and practices.

These community partners will be available for informal meetings between 11:30am - 12:30pm and 1:30pm - 2:30pm. Please contact Dr. Julie Ficarra ( if you'd like to set up a time to connect with them outside of the 12:30pm - 1:30pm panel discussion.
