Refugees are focus of forum

September 12, 2007

A public informational forum on the resettlement of refugees in Washington County will be Wednesday, Sept. 19, at Hagerstown Community College's Kepler Theater. The forum begins at 7 p.m. and will discuss how the resettlement program works and will answer questions from the audience.

Presentations will be made by representatives from the Bureau of Population, Refugees, and Migration, U.S. State Department; the Maryland Office of New Americans; Church World Services; and the Virginia Council of Churches. Each presentation will be followed by a brief question-and-answer period. Questions also will be taken at the end of the presentations.
