The Space Between Us: Immigrants, Refugees and Oregon

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, D.C., asks participants to consider questions of uprootedness, hospitality, identity, perception and integration and how we might build more informed, responsive, resilient and vibrant communities.
