One thought on “Global Local podcast: All resettlement is local”
Making people aware that refugees are a local issue. These people are not just a problem, but sources of new ideas that can benefit their new communities in the long run. Thank you for bringing the issue to the surface. I live in a tiny town in Tennessee, and some refugee people have brought yoga here to enrich what is available here. This one small small but significant to a small population place.
