Kenilworth Union’s Adult Education program is offering a two-part speaker series on refugees. On Tuesday, October 12, Bill Evertsberg will discuss scriptural background on how to receive refugees, and some history on the American welcome of refugees and immigrants.
On Monday, October 25, Sara Spoonheim Amit, Director of Development and Jims Porter Communications and Advocacy Manager both from the non-profit Outreach agency RefugeeOne, will discuss how to get involved in service to refugee families. As the largest resettlement agency in Chicago, RefugeeOne partners with the federal government to welcome refugees who have been fleeing war and persecution.
Both sessions will be in the Culbertson Room and will also be livestreamed to the church’s YouTube channel. Attendees will have the opportunity to ask questions and interact with the speakers, either in person, or through the chat feature in YouTube.
