"The Immigrant and Refugee Story from a Human Rights Perspective" Fact and resource fair sponsored by The Faribault Diversity Coalition, in partnership with The Advocates for Human Rights and other agencies Saturday, April 26, from 10 am to 2 pm in the Great Hall of Buckham Library in Faribault, Minnesota The purpose of this event is to help shed light on the facts surrounding immigration to the U.S. and Minnesota, as well as provide information about the rights of immigrants and refugees who reside in our community. Through this event, we hope to better understand why and how people become immigrants and refugees, as well as how they interact economically and in other ways with their new communities following immigration. We also aim to provide immigrants and refugees with community resources, as well as information about their basic human rights, including housing and medical services. Throughout this event, we will use videos to help provide a window into the lived experiences of immigrants and refugees, as well as help explore Minnesota's past to learn about the common ground that most of us - as immigrants - share. The Coalition hopes that this event can provide a positive environment for our community to learn more about the realities of so many of our immigrant and refugee residents here in Faribault, as well as provide our immigrant and refugee residents with a place to learn of services available to them as they become part of our community. Free food will be available. The event is open to the public and all are warmly invited to attend. The event is part of the Healthy Together Initiative supported by the Blue Cross and Blue Shield of MN Foundation.
