In the Lou: St. Louis as a Home for Refugees

September 29, 2021
4:00 pm - 5:30 pm

Join the Gephardt Institute in conversation with local leaders on how St. Louis has supported refugees as a community. How have we responded in past circumstances? How are we responding now? And what can you do as an individual? This is part of our ongoing In the Lou series where we bring community members together to talk about complex issues in the St. Louis context. The session will be held over Zoom.
