Jaffe’ Powers, a senior at UNCG, organized a week-long event to spread awareness about the different populations that are moving to the United States, where they are moving to, why they are moving, and what we can do to help. Powers wanted to use these events as a forum to start changing the negative perceptions that people have of these populations and make people aware that refugees¬†and immigrants also bring ideas, gifts and costumes that we could learn from. These events helped to provide a better understanding of where refugees and immigrants come from, why many are not able to stay in their native country, and what they are doing to create a better life here. ¬†The flyer below highlights the events from awareness week.
