The inaugural series of events continues after President Stoute’s installation with “Ukrainian Refugees in Poland: A Conversation with Aid Workers in Warsaw and Przemysl.”
The hybrid event (in person and virtual) takes place Wednesday, October 26 at 12:00 p.m. in the Bouwhuis Library Learning Center. Aid workers from Warsaw and Przemysl will Zoom in to share their experiences working on the front lines of the Ukraine-Poland border. Since the Russian invasion of Ukraine on February 24, 2022, it’s estimated that nearly four million people have fled to neighboring Poland. The newly-arrived refugees come primarily from those areas most heavily affected by the fighting and are initially assisted at reception centers along the Ukraine-Poland border.
This lecture is made possible by the Borders & Migrations Initiative. The QR code on the flyer can be used to make donations via PayPal.
