Immigration and refugee resettlement discussed at WSU

With refugee issues and immigration at the top of national concern, the Center for the Study of Citizenship offers an open forum for unscripted public discussion on those topics on Thursday evening, Feb. 23, at the Wayne State University Student Center, 5221 Gullen Mall in Detroit.

The event, scheduled from 7-9 p.m., will feature brief position statements from experts who support and who oppose refugee resettlement in the U.S., then will shift to facilitated table dialogue that allows all participants to share their visions and concerns.

This is part of a series of Community Dialogues being offered by the center in an attempt to reintroduce civil discourse that allows for caring conversation and careful listening on hot-button issues.

The Feb. 23 dialogue on refugee issues will be held in the Hilberry Rooms A and B on the second floor of the Student Center Building.

Admission is $5, or $2 with student I.D.
